Caboolture East Learning for Life Audit

Crombie, Robert, Rich, Bruce R., & Delaforce, Wayne H. (2006) Caboolture East Learning for Life Audit. QUT.


The Caboolture East Learning Audit (Community Jobs Plan (CJP)) was conducted between 14th February 2006 to 9th June 2006 with the purpose of gathering information on the learning needs of the community to enable participation in education, training and recreational activities.

The CJP - Work Placements created job placements for long-term unemployed people to participate in this project through the Department of Employment and Training’s Breaking the Unemployment Cycle initiative. The other major stakeholders for the Caboolture East Learning Audit project were the Queensland Government Department of Housing through its Caboolture-based office of Community Renewal (Sponsors of Stage 2 through the Caboolture Shire Council – which will implement the findings of Stage 1). Management of the project has been the responsibility of the Queensland University of Technology through QUT Carseldine.

The audit consisted of a survey of both residents and business shopfronts in the Caboolture East and catchment areas; this represents Stage 1 of the Learning for Life program. A target total of 2,600 residents and businesses for the audit resulted in 936 completed surveys.

This report represents the findings of stage 1 and forms part of the data and data analysis which will be provided to Stage 2 of the project. This includes the data-sets, collected as part of stage 1 and representing community and business survey results, prospective mentors, collections of anecdotal community stories and aspirations.

The residential survey consisted of five section namely; demography, learning and skills, learning and public space, learning and nutrition and learning and sport. The business-shopfront survey concerned itself with opportunities for employment and training, as well as attitudes to the advancement of learning in the workplace.
