The Geelong Region LLEN has both an in-house research capability, as well as operating a research team (Researching Futures) with a range of research and data capability to support its stakeholders and partners with planning and funding bids.
Some of the in-house research involves developing:
Environmental scans - a snapshot of the regional education, training and employment environment as well as information about the local labour market and industry growth. Past Environmental Scans, which have examined individual labour markets in the City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Golden Plains Shire and the Borough of Queenscliffe, are available on this site for those wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the regional economy. The intent of the GRLLEN for 2016 is to undertake Environmental Scans on an industry basis. This will involve identifying global and national factors affecting our regional growth industries, examining some of the new technologies impacting on those industries, and identifying trends which will affect the future of work in the region.
Labour market research in the G21 region - assist schools, industry and government to better understand the factors impacting the local labour market. The GRLLEN believes that it is not enough to produce data and information on the regional economy, but that many stakeholders needs to be assisted to better understand what that data means and how it can be used. As a result, the GRLLEN can also provide a service in which our labour market analyst and futurist undertakes “data conversations” with stakeholders to assist them to “make sense” of the data.
