Women Discovering Aged Care Careers
The contribution women can make to the sector in providing quality aged care to older Australians is invaluable.
ACSA is supporting women to gain a greater understanding of career pathways and opportunities for employment within the aged care sector.
We are connecting women across Tasmania and encouraging them to explore the diverse range of careers on offer in aged care.
Through the program, ACSA will provide the information and resources for women to have an awareness and understanding of the skills employers are looking for.
Our work will assist women from all backgrounds and in all stages of life to build their confidence, connections and work capability.
The program will be supported with a range of events and activities including:
Industry Awareness Program
for career advisors, teachers and disability and employment service provides to gain a better understanding of the sector so they can identify and refer their clients, jobseekers and students to the aged care sector.
Career Discovery Days
providing opportunities for women to learn about the employment opportunities, the diversity of job roles and career pathways, hear from staff that work in the sector. If possible (and covid-19 practices allow) we hope to also arrange site tours and participate in activities.
Practical Experience Days
providing ‘hands-on’ practical experience to support women who want to increase their understanding of the skills and aptitude that employers are looking for. Preference will be given to those who have also registered to attend a Career Discovery Day
Aged Care Workforce Innovation Network
for all stakeholders to collaborate while providing up-to-date industry information regarding ‘right fit’ suitability, regional job opportunities and pathways for women. The next Network meeting will be hosted online on the 30th June 2022 at 9:30am To register use the link below
