Project to build the capacity of the ACT disability  sector  workforce

With  the transition to the NDIS there is a need to attract and  retain a  more representative workforce which is also able to  operate  effectively in the new service purchase and delivery  environment.  

The  Territory released a Request for Proposals in November 2016 seeking  a  provider to build the capacity of the ACT disability sector  workforce through piloting innovative workplace and worker system reform  using a  collective impact approach and co-designed pilot projects to  broadly disperse learnings.  The tender closed 19 January 2017  and the project is expected to  commence in late March 2017.   The project is funded through the Commonwealth NDIS  Sector Development Fund.
