Workforce Planning for the Community Services and Health Industry. Occasional Paper
Karmel, Tom; Blomberg, Davinia
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
This paper aims to provide a picture of the occupations in the community services and health industry, and how the workforce obtains the required skills. The authors argue that planning for the industry should concentrate on occupations specific to the industry and those which require high skill levels. Findings suggest that the qualification levels of community services and health workers have increased substantially over the past decade. Furthermore, community services and health vocational education and training courses are well targeted, with most graduates finding employment in the industry. Appended are: (1) Employment within community services and health; (2) Mapping of ANZSCO (Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations) to ASCO (Australian Standard Classification of Occupations); (3) Employed persons by the level of qualification; (4) Change in qualifications, 1996 and 2006; (5) Top destination occupations; and (6) Top intended occupations. (Contains 25 tables, 1 figure, and 13 footnotes.) [Funding for this paper provided through the Australian Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.]
