About WorkAbility Queensland
Why a Workforce Strategy is needed
The progressive increase in available options for people with disability and the increased investment under the NDIS will require significant growth in the number of workers to support people with disability. There will also be a new range of skills and abilities required of workers to meet new demand, needs and expectations.
A strategic approach is required to ensure adequate workforce supply and capability, as well as the capacity and capability of service providers and the employment and training markets to be able to grow and sustain the required workforce into the future.
About the Strategy
WorkAbility Qld is led by a consortium of industry bodies in collaboration with key government agencies. The consortium includes:
WorkAbility Qld aims to work collaboratively with the sector, government and the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to build the sector workforce supply and capability to meet demand under the NDIS.
Workforce data and intelligence developed will help to build knowledge and skills, and enable organisations to effectively plan their workforce to meet the needs and demands of the sector into the future.
WorkAbility Qld provides real benefits for people, linking them with exciting and valued work and careers and builds community through social and economic opportunity.
The NDIS NGO Workforce Strategy – WorkAbility Qld – has been funded by the NDIS Sector Development Fund and is supported by the Queensland Government.
