The Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme (DWES) Instruction has been updated to include requirements for registered NDIS providers, and to clarify requirements for authorised labour hire agencies.
Some funded organisations may rely on labour hire providers to fill staff vacancies. As of 30 October 2019, labour hire providers must have applied for, or have a labour hire licence.
In the 2018-19 Victorian Budget, the Government committed $172 million to provide tuition fee-free training for TAFE students in key skill priority areas. These areas including health, community services and disability services were chosen to support the roll-out of the NDIS in Victoria, family violence prevention initiatives and help meet the demands of our ageing population.
