Multicap Skilling Up To Meet Growing Demand In Rockhampton

With the number of people requiring disability support services in Rockhampton set to increase over the next five years*, Multicap has already started to train and develop a team of job seekers. Some of these people will potentially be supporting our customers into the future after completing training through a new initiative called Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW)*.

Using vital funding from the Queensland Government, Multicap is delivering the program that will see up to 30 eligible local job seekers receive training to achieve the Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) qualification in 2019. Multicap has successfully delivered the program to 60 students in South-East Queensland since May 2017 with 50 of these students achieving the Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) qualification and 46 securing employment in the disability services sector.

Continuing to grow our team of friendly and experienced Disability Support Workers is a key strategic priority for Multicap, so that we can continue to provide the best possible support services to our customers. Programs such as the Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW) initiative enable us to continue to meet the growing demand for disability services across the regions, and provide the support and encouragement our customers need to achieve their goals, one step at a time. If you are interested in attending this training please contact Kate Hanson on 07 3340 9096 for more information.

*2019 data released by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) indicates that the agency will require up to 253 full-time equivalent personal carers* in the Rockhampton region by the year 2023

*This training is proudly funded by the Queensland Government through its Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative.
