Developing a pathway for young people into aged care and disability support

Through the National Youth Employment Body and the Transition to Work National Community of Practice, BSL and partners are supporting communities to design and implement a skills pathway for young people to enter the aged care and disability workforce.

The trial is using the Entry into Care Roles Skill Set, which was developed by the Human Service Skills Organisation in consultation with industry to rapidly upskill a ‘surge’ workforce for the aged care and disability support sector during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.

The trial is taking place in six regions across Australia.

The initial phase of the BSL’s National Youth Employment Body was funded by the Australian Government. In late 2020 the BSL, as the enabling organisation, secured funding through the Paul Ramsay Foundation for a second phase of scale-up of the NYEB. The second phase of the NYEB began in 2021 and includes four additional sites across Australia.
