The Pipeline Project: Veteran Transition Education Employment

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


The project will create a pipeline from the supply of defence personnel and transitioning veterans through education to careers. The pipeline project will support 50 transitioning veterans to supply the SA industry with a qualified, capable and healthy workforce. 30 veterans will be offered pathways into civil construction, media and communications and 20 university pathways. The pipeline “takes a whole of system approach, working to ensure transition services and support mechanisms are in place and working together for the benefit of transitioning ADF members and their families” (JTA). The pipeline generates a new or enhanced capability to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) by building on the return of investment in service personnel training and experience, creating labour market efficiencies by appropriately matching personnel skills and ambition, with market demand and appropriate education pathways to job outcomes. The lifelong learning of veterans improve Defence effectiveness by generating veteran awareness and utility of the Total Workforce System.
