Overview

On 12 November 2016, the Victorian Government announced it would establish an independent, legislated registration and accreditation scheme for Victoria’s disability workforce. The scheme will protect vulnerable people from harm and support the development and growth of a quality disability workforce, by ensuring workers who care for people with disability have the right skills, experience and qualifications.

This consultation paper has been developed to ensure the Victorian Government has a good understanding of community views on the potential features of a scheme, and the risks and benefits of each option.
