Between January and February 2022, we asked for feedback from the My Aged Care Screening and Assessment Workforce on the effectiveness of the current training model and learning platform. A key theme we heard was widespread support for the re-establishment of the My Aged Care Assessment Workforce Training Reference Group.
This Reference Group will provide advice to the Department of Health on the future direction of the 2019 My Aged Care and Assessment Workforce Training Strategy (the Strategy). This includes participating in a review and update of the Strategy in 2022.
We are now seeking expressions of interest for a minimum of 10 experienced aged care assessors, workplace trainers and lead educators to represent Regional Assessment Services and Aged Care Assessment Teams nationally.
Reference Group members will serve between July 2022 and June 2023 and will meet online via a video conference every three months. Members will be required to review papers before each meeting, and actively contribute to discussions.
