For the past 6 months, the team at Department of the Future have been mapping out the Campaign For Change. This is a campaign to change the mindset of communities to encourage and celebrate everyday heroes. We want to help them tell their stories, to demonstrate and highlight the emotional roller coaster each skilled person experiences, celebrating the highs and how they deal with the lows. We want to support them during their entire journey.

Australia has grown through the hard work and sweat of skilled workers. Over 100 different skills continue to build our country and our economy, today and into a better future for all the Australians. For this reason, it’s time to celebrate these everyday heroes.

This is an opportunity of shaping the next generation of skilled workers, to meet the demands of the future workforce.
