Grant gives opening for aged care

FUNDING has been committed to address a skills shortage in aged care in the Ipswich area.

Fifty local jobseekers will receive training to prepare them to enter the industry directly under the $392,000 joint State-Federal governments project.

Ipswich MP Rachel Nolan said the training was part of a Productivity Places Program grant to Career Employment Australia.

“The Productivity Places Program is designed to help local jobseekers complete accredited training and obtain jobs in industries suffering from skills shortages,” Ms Nolan said.

The joint initiative between the Australian, State and Territory Governments helps people complete full qualifications at levels ranging from Certificate II to Diploma.
