Report: Strengthening Queensland’s NDIS Workforce
WorkAbility Queensland and funding partner Jobs Queensland have launched the Strengthening Queensland’s NDIS Workforce report.
The report is part of a three-year research project led by the University of Sunshine Coast (USC) to investigate the impacts of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) on the sector’s workforce since its rollout in 2016.
Research has involved three hundred employers, employees, sole traders, and self-managed participants who have shared their experiences of the NDIS.
Labour market data, captured by CSIRO’s Data1, reveals insights to the disability workforce that predict it is continued to grow by a further 18.8% over five years – more than doubling the workforce as the fastest growing Industry in Queensland.
