Minister for Training and Skills Yvette D’Ath has today released a plan that maps out the future of the tourism workforce and outlines how the industry is expected to need another 20,000 workers by 2020.
“This plan has created a roadmap for how we prepare for future job needs that will be available in the tourism sector,” Mrs D’Ath said.
“It is estimated that about 20,000 extra tourism workers will be needed in Queensland by 2020 and this plan is a starting point that will help ensure we have a skilled-up workforce to meet that demand.”
