The Common Induction for NDIS Workforce Micro Credential is a pilot project delivered by co-design with Industry and people with lived experience of disability.
The Common Induction for NDIS Workforce Micro Credential addresses priority industry skills needs through flexible quality training approaches.
The project has been developed in partnership with the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) and builds on existing and new relationships with industry networks and NDIS service providers across Queensland.
The pilot focuses on delivering a shorter learning opportunity (known as a micro credential) with an emphasis on inclusion to mandatory and other commonly required elements of training for new NDIS workers industry and current workforce.
The Common Induction for NDIS Workforce Micro Credential project is timely in responding to industry needs, as identified in the NDIS Workforce Research Project, and has direct links and cross benefits to strategies within the NTSSS Project.
While the pilot is specifically targeted at the NDIS workforce it is anticipated it can be applied more broadly across the community services industry.
A stakeholder project advisory group works together to identify local priority training elements for NDIS workforce inductions. The developed pilot will then be delivered in Cairns and Brisbane to a cohort of forty participants.
A state-wide survey and one on one interviews have also been held to assist with determining industry demands when inducting new workers.
Consultation has also occurred with Self-Managed Participants who employ their own workers at QDeNgage.
