Active Industry Workforce Survey

The experience and knowledge of our industry leaders is important to the future of developing the Active Industry workforce, and we want to hear from you to shape our workforce.

We need to ensure that our workforce is ready for the future — including the years leading up to the 2032 Olympics/Paralympics. Which is why our team is developing a ten-year Active Industry Workforce Plan 2024-2034. The Plan will provide a snapshot and analysis of the current workforce and skills available, and the future workforce needed for the active industry for the next 10 years. 

Having a workforce ready to meet increased participation across the active industry, not just sport, will give us the best chance of translating the excitement of the games into long term benefit to the industry and all Queenslanders. The plan will also include strategies and actions for how best to prepare the workforce for the future beyond the games.   

So, how can you help? Please fill out our survey!

We’re asking for one leader from each active industry organisation in our state  to complete our survey. Please read the answers to the FAQs below to ensure that the survey is completed by the right person!

What kinds of organisations come under ‘Active Industry’?

The Active Industry refers to the fitness, movement, sport, outdoor recreation, outdoor education, adventure therapy, adventure tourism, community recreation and aquatics sectors, including volunteer-run organisations.

Who should fill the survey out?

It is important that only one person from each organisation completes the survey. This person should have the most knowledge about the organisation’s workforce- both paid and volunteers. Please check with other management team members to nominate one person only to complete the survey.

How long will it take to fill out the survey?

The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete for someone who is knowledgeable about the organisation’s workforce.

Is the survey confidential?

Yes, the survey is both anonymous and confidential.

We’ve already completed the survey, but I know other clubs haven’t. Can we send it to them?

Yes, please do! AQIA appreciates you sharing this link throughout your networks to maximise responses to ensure a broad representation of views is heard.

What’s next?

Future online and face to face meetings and workshops will also be conducted as part of the consultation process as we work together towards a better future for our Active Industry Workforce.

This project is proudly funded by the Queensland Government Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport under the Active Industry Project Fund.
