The implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) represents the most comprehensive social policy reform in a generation. The NDIS is creating a significant number of new jobs, spread across all regions of Queensland.
Jobs Queensland has been working with WorkAbility Queensland since 2018, to examine the skill demand and supply needs to meet the rollout of the NDIS in Queensland.
The key outputs to date are:
- Strengthening Queensland’s NDIS workforce statewide report (2020): describes the outcomes of research undertaken by Jobs Queensland and WorkAbility Queensland (a peak industry body consortium) to investigate the workforce challenges and opportunities associated with the operation of the NDIS in Queensland.
- Six region-specific NDIS workforce reports for Brisbane North, Brisbane South, Ipswich, Mackay, Toowoomba and Townsville regions, hosted on the WorkAbility Queensland website. The region-specific NDIS workforce reports include findings, insights, impacts and themes within the disability workforce in response to the NDIS rollout in each of the regions.
- Building the NDIS workforce through traineeships (2018): a report about the role of traineeships in supporting skills growth for the NDIS workforce.
- A searchable digital resource hub hosted on the WorkAbility Queensland website that provides news, career, funding and training information for all NDIS stakeholders.
