Career Transition Assistance (CTA)
CTA assists mature age job seekers to increase their job readiness by providing practical assistance to develop digital literacy skills, identifying transferable skills and better targeting their job search to local industries and available jobs.
CTA is delivered by a network of providers nationally.

Job seekers can be referred by their Employment provider, NEST provider, or by the Department’s Contact Centre (regardless of whether you are in receipt of income support or not).
