This blueprint responds to the impacts of COVID-19 and entrenched unemployment. It complements reforms the federal government has started of the national employment services system, and builds on the Local Jobs Program and the establishment of a Local Jobs and Skills Taskforce in 25 employment regions, announced in September 2020.

It offers a detailed how-to guide to scale up regionally and locally tailored approaches to tackling unemployment, with a focus on people facing disadvantage in the job market. It aims to move beyond the principles of locally tailored approaches, to assisting actors to put them into practice. It aims to make locally and regionally differentiated responses an enduring part of the employment service system.
