Queensland Government announces more support for NDIS workforce training
In the lead up to the Premier’s Skills Summit on Wednesday 28 November, the Queensland Government has announced additional measures to help prepare Queensland’s future workforce for the NDIS.
Minister for Training and Skills Development, Shannon Fentiman, says the Palaszczuk government is moving to implement 11 recommended strategies outlined in the NDIS Workforce through Traineeships report, released by Jobs Queensland in August.
“With the roll-out of the NDIS, we know that there will be an increased demand for skilled workers in the health care industry,” Ms Fentiman said.
“The recommendations of the Jobs Queensland report focus on raising awareness of the existing training pathways and opportunities among employers and potential employees and developing regional and specialised training.
“These recommendations will be implemented as part of the NDIS Training and Skills Support Strategy, a $5 million investment over three years to 2020 to support NDIS training pathways and workforce development.”
