Queensland prepares for jobs boom in transition to NDIS

As part of Queensland's transition to the national disability insurance scheme (NDIS) rolling out across Australia, 13,000 potential new workers could be needed for the disability sector in the state.

Queensland officially signed on to implement the scheme on 8 May, which means that eligible residents with a disability will be able to enter the NDIS from 1 July 2016. By 1 July 2019, it's anticipated that all Queenslanders with a disability will be covered by the scheme.

Also known as DisabilityCare Australia, the government initiative aims to provide assistance with individualised plans and support, information and referral services, access to community services and activities and early intervention for people with disability.

As part of Queensland's transition to the scheme, the amount of workers in the disability sector is expected to increase significantly to cope with the new policy.

State Disability Minister Tracy Davis has welcomed the news, and says the impending demand for more workers will provide a great opportunity for those looking for work or hoping to launch a new career.

"In Queensland, the NDIS will capture twice the number of clients who receive specialist care, so it makes sense the workforce will need to increase at the same rate," Ms Davis said in a 19 September statement.

"The workforce will also need appropriate skills and training as the scheme rolls out.

"It is going to be a big challenge for the disability sector to find enough skilled workers to fill the predicted workforce shortage."
