Report of the Strategic Workforce Advisory Group

On 19 October 2012, Commissioner Gooley presented her Final Report to the Government. The report details areas of agreement and disagreement from the Strategic Workforce Advisory Group on the requirements to be met by providers in order to access the additional funding under the Addressing-workforce-pressure initiative.

After receiving Commissioner Gooley’s final report, the Government consulted further with provider and employee representatives to finalise the Aged Care Workforce Compact and Aged Care Workforce Supplement.
