Aged & Community Services Tasmania

Through our Innovation Network, and associated activities, Workskills is a significant contributor and supporter to the Aged Services Sector and Aged and Community Services Tasmania (ACST). As the peak organisation for providers of Aged Services in Tasmania ACST recognises the significant benefits that can be gained from our Sector establishing and maintaining an effective working relationship with the providers of Employment Services. Our relationship with Workskills is based on a mutual understanding of the importance in working together to meet the regional workforce attraction and recruitment demand for the Aged Services Sector in Tasmania.

Workskills has been proactive in forging key industry relationships with our Sector and has been a reliable resource for providing information about the employment services environment. Through this engagement Workskills has demonstrated a clear understanding of the requirements associated with working in our sector. Workskills are a valued member of the Aged Services Sector Innovation Network and are willing participants, and contributors, to numerous Innovation Network Projects. We look forward to continuing to work together with Workskills in their ‘new world’ role as a Jobactive Provider.

Mission Australia

Mission Australia and Workskills area of operation cover the same geographical regions. We attend many of the same forums, information sessions and conferences and as such have become close working partners, often being involved with the same community and school-based initiatives in the area.

We’ve collaborated in many of these kinds of partnerships across southern Tasmania. With a shared community focus we’re keen to continue this fruitful collaboration into the future. We highly value and actively seek the perspective and contribution Workskills brings to these community activities and to the work we do at Mission Australia.
