Jobs Australia's Submission - The Next Generation of Employment Services

Jobs Australia's submission in response to the Department of Jobs and Small Business' The next generation of employment services Discussion Paper  can be accessed via this link

Key points from our submission which we feel most strongly about, include:

  • A licencing model with a capped number of providers in each region.
  • Reduced compliance and administration for providers, with an independent regulatory panel to ensure that the integrity of the model is maintained over time.
  • A benchmarking approach to performance measurement, instead of Star Ratings.
  • Four service streams, ranging from digital only through to intensive face to face case management for those who need the most support.

Throughout the final stages of the ES 2020 policy development, Jobs Australia will continue to champion positive outcomes for providers and unemployed people.
