Tertiary Students Local Government Sector Awareness Plan Working Group

The PLA Vic/ Tas Region Board has identified that there is a general lack of awareness by tertiary students of the career opportunities available within the sport, recreation, and open space sectors of local government. A project working group was established late last year to have a sector representative group research and assess the issue, and to then assist the PLA Vic/Tas Region Board by developing a Tertiary Students' Local Government Sector Awareness Plan.

The Project Working Group has developed a survey to better understand the experiences of the sector in relation to student placements, internships, traineeships and graduate employment - barriers, opportunities, success stories - anything that can help them to develop a robust and practical plan.
