COVID-19 Road to Recovery Education/Training Needs

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on employment, required workplace skills and the nature of jobs of many Australian employees and workers. We are seeking your help to establish which and how new skills should be provided, funded and acquired more quickly to ensure all Australians can participate and benefit from Australia’s successful business recovery during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our research team seeks to find out what has changed for working Australians regarding:

  • The technical and generic skills you or your team members need, or need more of, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The optimal ways to address these skills needs in the next 12 months, including innovative approaches and possible government support packages.

We need the views of a broad range of Australian workers including: professionals who work in large or small organisations; small business owners; sole traders and micro business owners; contractors; consultants; and others. If you are an Australian worker over the age of 18, you are invited to share your views.

This survey has been approved and is conducted independently by Deakin University. This study has received Deakin University ethics approval (reference number: HAE-20-087). The research project is endorsed and overseen by the COSBOA/ACoP “COVID-19 Business Recovery Council” which directly advises the Prime Minister’s National COVID-19 Coordination Commission.

For more information on the survey, please contact the Office of the CEO on 1300 664 587 or at!
