Neil Purdy

Manager, Workforce Planning
Department of Education Western Australia


2:40 PM From Workforce Planning to Workforce Training: How WA Department of Education’s Own Workforce Planning Tools Have Influenced Public Education Systems

Western Australia’s Department of Education has worked on a journey developing the National Workforce Data Strategy to assist in creating a deeper understanding of supply issues in the national school workforce. Through their internal HR Metrics and strong development strategies, the Department has become an influential guide in assisting universities and schools to understand the supply of their workforce. This session will be a case study overview on the strategies at the Department of Education, with insights into ways organisations can further enhance their capabilities and influence the workforce plans outside of their own organisation.

  • Looking at HR Metrics as a basis for workforce training across a national, state and individual level to improve supply and quality of teaching staff
  • Analysing internal strategies and workforce management: Department of Education’s monitoring and policies of unplanned leave and how it assists education systems in this area
  • How you can play a vital role as a government organisation to influence the maturity of workforce planning externally to help others develop the skills and workforce they need
