We currently have approximately 10,000 people employed in the space industry nationally. By 2030, this workforce is projected to expand to 30,000 people. Join our industry immersion at Lot Fourteen to gain an expanded understanding of why the South Australian space industry will experience significant growth over the next decade.
Presenter Darin Lovett, Director of Space at the South Australian Space Industry Centre, will provide information to private and school career practitioners and STEAM teachers of the future opportunities that will further develop this thriving and durable SA space sector.
Following this immersion, attendees will have the knowledge to educate school students and private clients on what skills can be developed to prepare for careers in the space industry and the types of careers available.
You will leave with an understanding of existing entry level employment options through to higher level requirements for post entry roles and awareness of the education and training requirements for career progression. Attendees will be able to use the available tools and data to conduct further and future research.
