• Connecting & Coordinating for a Prosperous Region

    TO BE


    Who we are.

    Talent Central is here to foster collaboration between our education and business communities to harness the growth needed for our region to succeed in the 21st Century. We're all about inspiring our talent about the employment opportunities available to them, and ensure they are motivated to contribute to their own learning.

    What success will look like.

    We'll have a prosperous and growing region, our economic growth underpinned directly by education and training that meets our needs. To begin with we'll focus on our key sectors, but over time we'll extend our activities to other areas.
