Working for a better future and outcomes for our children

New Workforce Strategy for our Sector

The Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Child Protection Sector Workforce Strategy 2018-2023 is about to be released. The Strategy identifies priorities, objectives and actions designed to address the workforce needs of our sector, to enable staff to provide support to either, keep our children and families out of the statutory system or meet their needs while they are in it.

The Strategy focuses on strategic workforce issues, many of which must be addressed at the state level.
An Implementation Plan accompanies the Strategy to support the development of local and/or regional actions, with a focus on understanding and addressing local and regional needs. QATSICPP staff will be offering support to services to complete local implementation plans.
The Strategy acknowledges the importance of achieving work-life balance for staff of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Child Protection organisations and provides a structured pathway towards further self-determination within the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Controlled Child Protection sector.
The Workforce Strategy is a living document spanning five years, with annual reviews to enable incorporation of actions aligned to emerging priorities.

QATSICPP acknowledges members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Family Wellbeing Program – Strategic Implementation Group – Workforce Development Working Group who developed the Workforce Strategy.
