NEW STARTERS - INTRODUCTION TO AUSTRALIA'S EMPLOYMENT SERVICES SECTOR

ONLINE   |   3 PARTS

Starts Monday 4 April 2022

TARGET GROUP

New Starters in the Employment Services Sector

SUMMARY

Hit the ground running; for the new starters in the Employment services

The coaching program is designed to assist your new starters (regardless of which program) to quickly gain an understanding of our employment services sector, and to gain skills and knowledge to help them work with the big numbers of participants entering into the programs.

Over 3 webinar sessions, Damien Opolski will comprehensively introduce staff to the programs and components that make up todays employment services industry. We will look at how employment services have evolved, and see what is required to achieve results in a rapidly changing labour market. We will look at the role of Services Australia in assessing and referring job seekers to programs, and the role of providers in developing the Job/Participation Plans that underpin services and ensure job seekers can meet their mutual obligation requirements.

Regardless of which program you are recruiting (or recruited) for, our New Starters- Introduction to Australia’s Employment Services Sector series will perfectly complement your own induction programs.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

The Intro to Employment Services coaching program has been developed by Damien Opolski. Damien has a background in delivering employment services and for a number of years managed the Departments Learning Centre. He has designed the program to help new starters better understand the context and concepts of the government’s  approach to employment services. It gives new starters an opportunity to better learn the ‘big picture’ and where they sit.

Session 1: An overview of today’s employment services programs – Monday 4 April 2022 at 2.00pm AEST

looks at how services have evolved as the labour market has changed. We get an overview of today’s  suite of programs and how the programs are tailored to the different client groups. We look at the concept of Mutual Obligations and the role of employment providers in assessing and working with job seekers to meet the objectives of work, engagement and participation. We look at the future of services and how digital servicing is expected to play an increasing role for some job seekers, with enhanced face to face servicing for those likely to benefit from a case management service.

We look at the features which are common across all programs:

  • The role of Services Australia in triaging jobseekers to appropriate services through JSCI, ESAt and JCA assessments, and determining a job seekers MOR
  • We learn how some clients, such as vulnerable youth and those who are at risk of retrenchment, can access services
  • We look at the role of the provider in assessing vocational and non-vocational characteristics and negotiating the ‘contract’, or Job Plan, that underpins services.
  • We talk briefly about the role of service fees and outcome fees, and how the Departments assess provider performance for efficiency, effectiveness and quality.

Session 2: The Australian labour market –  yesterday, today and tomorrow – Wednesday 6 April 2022 at 2.00pm AEST

looks at our evolving labour market and opportunities for our clients. We look at causes of unemployment and LTUE, and how the labour market has changed as a result of automation, efficiency and globalisation. We look at the data which tells us about the types of work that our clients tend to find. Most importantly, we look at trends in the labour market which inform us about the future of work and opportunities for our client base.

Session 3: Mutual Obligation Requirements and the Job Seeker and Targeted Compliance Frameworks – Friday 8 April 2022 at 12 noon AEST

looks in more detail at MOR and compliance. We look in more detail at part-time and full-time MOR and how job seekers can meet their MOR. We introduce new starters to the TCF- the concept of demerits and the use of income support suspension to keep people engaged.

In addition, new starters have the opportunity to tap into Damien’s 35 years of experiences in the sector.
