The first phase of the Professional Pathways Consultation process will run from late July – November 2022 and there are multiple ways for everyone to get involved and have their say. People can participate in the Consultation Launch, which is open to all (livestreamed and recorded), register for one of a series of face-to-face and hybrid workshops, provide written feedback through the Consultation Paper and fill out the Consultation Survey. Feedback and findings will be presented in a comprehensive report early next year.
The Consultation Launch, hosted by the State Library of Queensland, presents work on the initiative and details of the draft framework. All stakeholders can have their say and help shape the framework and future of the LIS workforce. Watch the recording here.
In-person and hybrid workshops will be held in every capital city and a number of regional centres. Take the opportunity to delve into the draft framework, discuss its content and design, strengths and weaknesses. ALIA Members and non-Members are welcome. Check the calendar on the right for details and to register for a workshop near you.
The Consultation Paper is available for anyone to provide written submissions. Have your say on the draft framework and on big picture questions about professional recognition and career pathways.
The Consultation Survey will gather quantitative data on the draft framework, with questions founded on qualitative data and findings gathered through the workshops and written submissions. The survey will be open to all.
