Access4u has joined forces with South Australian based Career Employment Group (CEG) to tackle a state-wide staff and skill shortage facing the disability sector in South Australia.

As part of a new campaign both organisations are calling for South Australians to consider a traineeship in disability support as the sector struggles to meet demand due to expediential growth.

Our CEO, Cathy Miller, says there is a critical need to urgently build a trained and robust workforce that is based on strong values and a desire to empower the lives of South Australians living with disability.

“There is a very real staffing and skills crisis facing our industry in South Australia and beyond. This challenge presents an opportunity for students to undertake flexible, real life on-the -job training that will lead to tangible and rewarding career pathways”, she says.

“Access4u has always recruited for values and trained for skill. We strive to show our trainees that this is a diverse and fulfilling career that is so much more than just personal care”.

CEG CEO Andrew Anninos says that the traineeship program with Access4u is an important step in lifting education standards and investing in trained workforces for the future.

“The traineeship program is an opportunity to reshape, build and upskill a workforce that is experiencing significant challenges”, Mr. Anninos says.

“While the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted training standards across Australia, now is the time to lift education standards and invest in training that leads to the better provision of services”.

Access4u is seeking interest from potential trainees who are looking for a career that promotes flexibility and makes a genuine difference to the lives of South Australians.

“We are excited to be building the disability workforce and encourage people to connect with us to discover the fantastic opportunities for personal and professional growth that exist within the industry.

There is nothing more rewarding than mentoring trainees who become integral members of the Access4u family. These are the same people who are shaping the future of disability support”, Ms. Miller says.

Case Study – Will

Over two years ago, Will’s family chose Access4u to support them in using their NDIS plan. Our experienced team connected Will to the supports he needed using our resources, expertize and industry connections. This ultimately provided him with the best chance of reaching his goals.

Over time, we've been able to develop a great team of people who people understand Will. This has helped us support Will and has enabled him to increase his independence and achieve his goals.

Two years on and Will is now happily and independently living out of home with the support of his caring team.
