We explore what the potential introduction of a registration scheme for all support workers could mean for the sector.

One of the most significant recommendations for the NDIS landscape is the potential introduction of a registration scheme for all support workers. If accepted, this could mean mandatory worker registration and screening, recognition of training and professional development and portable training and leave provisions.

We will explore the critical questions of this major proposal with Angus McFarland and Dan Stubbs, unpacking:

  • What a National Disability Worker Registration Scheme would look like – and who it would apply to

  • How the voluntary scheme works in Victoria 

  • The delicate balance of registration and safety with regulation burden 

  • The benefits to participants, service providers and workers

  • What the Royal Commission has said about qualifications

  • How portable leave and training could work

  • Implications for the SCHADS award

  • And of course, what we expect from here and how to get involved
