The event is part of a new collaboration between Community Care TASMANIA, TasTAFE and Workforce Australia – Local Jobs, funded by the Australian Government, to help Tasmanians find a job in aged care and address skills shortages in the industry.

Recognising the need to be pro-active in addressing skill shortages, Community Care TASMANIA have partnered with TasTAFE through a Local Recovery Fund activity called the Care Industries Training to Employment Pathways Program. The Program will co-design and model a new method of attracting and training new direct care workers.
