WASIA - Industry Training & events

Industry Training

Industry Training is critical to ensuring the future of the wool harvesting sector and its ability to meet the needs of wool growers.

The quality of training and skills development for entry-level shearers, shed hands and wool handlers and the industry's ability to offer training opportunities both on and off the job is necessary to ensure a future workforce. Use the Training Register

Hand-in-hand with training is the need for consistant year-round employment opportunities, including traineeships, to help retain new young workers in the industry and not loose them to other industry with continuous employment.

Wool Growers - if you can can shift your shearing and crutching activities to less busy times of year, please contact your Contractor and discuss options for shifting your usual dates or use the Contracts Register to promote an alternative time for shearing. This can help keep shearing teams engaged year-round and help to retain young workers in the industry by offering them continuity of employment.
