NDIS WORKFORCE FORUMS
NDIS Workforce Forums will be held in each region as the NDIS is rolled out across the state. The forums will provide local workforce information and gather local intelligence and priorities.
These forums will provide an opportunity for employers; workers; training, education and employment organisations; and a host of other stakeholders to discuss the opportunities, challenges and solutions for workforce supply, workforce capability and workforce utilisation, and will help to develop shared insights and workforce strategies for each region.
Discussions from these forums will form a basis for the development of the Local Workforce Plan for each region and will help to shape an understanding of the cultural change and workforce transition as a result of the implementation of the NDIS.
Employers and workers will also have the opportunity to hear a range of perspectives on workforce expectations under the NDIS, including the voices of NDIS participants, their families and trial site organisations.
