Education and Workplace Training Forum
The community's vision is for Roxby Downs to be a place of excellence in education and workplace training. The Education and Workplace Training Forum was established in September 2005 as a subcommittee of the Roxby Downs Community Board. The Forum is made up of representatives from local schools, TAFE SA, group training organisations (CEG), businesses, BHP Billiton, Roxby Downs Council and interested members of the community.
The group works together to develop strategies and projects that progress the community's vision. In 2006 and 2007 the forum ran a successful Outback Careers and Employment Expo. In 2008 and 2009 a sister event called "Career Speak" was held with a program of speakers from a range of industries and professions with a target audience is school students in years 9 to 12, their parents and community members. Between 2009 and 2011, the Forum implemented a Community Learning Places program to increase access to vocational places to youth and adult learners
