Community care providers are being encouraged to have their say on the skills impacts of consumer-directed policy reforms underway in the sector as part of a new national project.
The project conducted by Skills IQ, a skills service organisation funded by the Federal Government to support the review of industry qualifications, is holding industry workshops across Australia.
The consultations aim to inform the future direction of industry qualifications in the health and community services industry.
Skills IQ said the project would examine “cross-sector roles and skills” in the health and community services sectors such as aged care, disability, mental health, allied health, homelessness and housing.
An industry survey will also be conducted as part of the ‘cross sector coordination across health and community services’ project.
Workshops are being held in every capital city during April and May.
