A focus for the Department has been to develop initiatives that support development of people through skills and aims to address the decline in the number of people seeking agribusiness as a career.
One of these initiatives has been the development of six Tasmanian agribusiness case studies utilising YouTube. These demonstrate the diversity of career pathways in Tasmanian agribusiness and raise the profile of the food and agriculture sectors. The aim is to introduce young people and potential new entrants to the sector and show them a sample of the career pathways and opportunities it can offer.
