Queensland disability sector to create 13,000 roles

Jobs in Queensland's disability sector to increase

There may soon be a need for more traineeships in Queensland, with the state’s disability sector set to expand in the coming years.

Disabilities minister Tracy Davis said proper planning must be put in place to ensure there are enough skilled workers to fill 13,000 potential new roles by 2019.

Ms Davis said the state must prepare for the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

“It is going to be a big challenge for the disability sector to find enough skilled workers to fill the predicted workforce shortage,” she stated.

“This will be a huge opportunity for Queenslanders who are looking for work or a career change. It will also boost the Queensland economy, as well as the education and training sectors.”

The Newman government is already implementing the Sector Readiness and Workforce Capacity Initiative, a $1.9 million state-wide community services training scheme.

Running until June 2014, the initiative includes a business development package that helps non-government organisations to respond to major reforms and changing client and community needs in the disability sector.

The scheme is being delivered by National Disability Services Queensland in partnership with the Health and Community Services Workforce Council.
