The social work & human services workforce : report from a national study of education, training and workforce needs /

by Healy, Karen | Australian Learning and Teaching Council | Lonne, Bob.

Publisher: Strawberry Hills, N.S.W. Australian Learning and Teaching Council 2010Description: 76 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: January 2010 Bibliography : p. 71-74Summary: This report analyses the national curriculum and workforce needs of the social work and human services workforce. Australia's community and health services are among the fastest growing sectors of employment in the nation but the sustainability of an appropriately qualified workforce is threatened. Yet there is little integration of education and workforce planning for the community services sector. This contrasts markedly with the health services sector, where key stakeholders are collaboratively addressing workforce challenges.Availability: (1)
