ADM Defence Skilling Summit

The 2nd annual ADM Defence Skilling Summit, hosted by the Tasmanian Government, will be a one-day, high-level, executive gathering of key players from both Defence and Defence Industry. They will address the current and future skills requirements needed for Australia to remain a global player in the Defence space and to deliver and sustain the nation’s future Defence capability.

The Summit will assess current programs and initiatives, look at how academic institutions and training providers are placed to deliver the skillsets of tomorrow; ask what more industry seeks from its education providers; and examine the impediments educators face in producing world-class, industry-ready graduates.

The conference will look at best-case scenarios for the re-skilling and upskilling of the current labour force, and examine ways of getting under-utilised groups to be more productive. How do we attract more women into the Defence industry? Can we be doing more to tap into the experience and know-how of veterans? And, how do we make the modern defence industry inclusive and welcoming to attract the best and the brightest this country can offer?

There are many exciting projects on the horizon for Defence and industry. This Summit will highlight the pathways that need to be taken to ensure that future capability can be delivered and sustained in Australia.
