The NDIS Workforce Fundamentals Micro Credential is a pilot project in partnership with TAFE Queensland and developed through co-design with Industry and people with lived experience of disability.
The NDIS Workforce Fundamentals Micro Credential Pilot addresses priority industry skills needs through flexible quality training approaches.
The project is funded by Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) and works with networks and NDIS service providers across Queensland to develop a induction resource that is practical and responsive to industry needs.
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 NDIS Workforce Fundamentals Micro Credential Pilot 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 has worked together to develop the content of the micro credential through identifying local priority training elements for NDIS workforce inductions. The developed pilot will then be delivered in Cairns and Brisbane to a cohort of eighty participants.
To gather industry-wide input to the project a state-wide survey and one on one interviews were held to assist with determining what information and themes were similar across NDIS providers and disability organisations when inducting new workers.
Consultation also took place with self-managed NDIS participants; people with lived experience of disability who employ their own workers.
