If you have experience working in aged or disability care, chances are you have a passion for helping others. But did you know that this industry is facing a career boom? That’s right, health care and social assistance (which includes aged and disability care) is expected to have over 300 thousand new jobs this year. This is in part due to Australia’s ageing population, but also due to the need to fill NDIS related support roles.
Working with elderly or disabled people in residential or community-based settings requires specialised knowledge and skills. When you have experience in these fields, you can elevate your career by formalising these skills.
