Want to help shape the future of our industry?

Organisations which provide aged care, education and care, disability and social services, face significant workforce challenges.

If you are responsible for attracting, recruiting, training and retaining staff please join us at the inaugural Workforce Coalition Network meeting on Tuesday 22 November 2022. Register quick, there are limited spaces left.

The Human Services Skills Organisation (HSSO) will be bringing some highlights from the ‘Confronting the Challenge: The future care and support workforce’ event series to share with attendees.

HSSO CEO Jodi Schmidt will share relevant knowledge and her experience in addressing workforce challenges. She will also bring a ‘hot off the press’ recording of Bernard Salt’s latest address, in which he unpacks critical issues the care and support sector is facing, as well as future growth opportunities. Bernard Salt AM is one of Australia’s leading social commentators.

We are also pleased to announce the following guest speakers:

  • The Minister for Community Services and Development, the Hon Nic Street MP, and the Minister for Skills, Training and Workforce Growth, the Hon Felix Ellis MP, will both talk about the importance of this cross-sector collaboration and the Workforce Coordination Project on behalf of the Tasmanian Government.
  • Peta Sugden, Director (Workforce Development and Strategic Relations) at Skills Tasmania, will talk about the state reform agendas.

As part of the Workforce Coalition Network, you will have the opportunity to provide valuable input into a range of areas, such as what cohorts to attract, what barriers to remove when recruiting new talent, and how to best support you with undertaking workforce planning and development.
