NDIS NGO WORKFORCE STRATEGY
The progressive increase in demand and available options for people with disability and the increased investment under the NDIS will require significant growth in the number of workers across the sector and in the range of skills and abilities required to meet new demand, needs and expectations.
On 1 March 2016, Disability Services Minister Coralee O’Rourke officially launched the NDIS NGO Workforce Strategy – WorkAbility Queensland: Building tomorrow’s NDIS workforce, at Parliament House in Brisbane to strengthen and grow Queensland’s workforce ahead of the NDIS.
A strategic approach is required to meet not only the immediate challenges associated with ensuring adequate workforce supply and capability, but also the capacity and capability of providers to be able to respond, grow and sustain the required workforce into the future. The changing market context under the NDIS will not only mean a significant increase in the number and capability of workers required in the disability sector, but will also require a transformation of the sector as a whole.
