Learning and Professional Development
As the demand for aged care services will increase substantially over the next 40 years, appropriate planning for a well-supported and qualified aged care services workforce is vital.
One of the ways for aged care service providers to overcome some of the workforce challenges is by adopting a strong commitment to ongoing staff Learning and Professional Development. A commitment to staff Learning and Professional Development will increase knowledge, skills, productivity and loyalty, to ensure a good quality of life for older Australians into the future.
In delivering quality aged care services, it is essential to ensure people entering into our Sector are ‘right fit’ and that there is the appropriate training and development opportunities in place to enable the required skills and knowledge to be developed. This has been the driving force for ACSA’s range of learning and professional development activities, programs and initiatives – all designed to drive an effective aged care services workforce.
ACSA is dedicated to supporting the aged care services industry to have ready access to a range of practical and relevant Learning and Professional Development options.
