LASA Supporting Aged Care – Centre for Workforce Development & Innovation

LASA’s Centre for Workforce Development & Innovation is an exciting initiative established to catalyse age services sector transformation by enhancing workforce capability, promoting our industry to those who have not yet discovered its benefits, and fostering constructive organisational change to ready the sector for reforms. Our aim is to:

  • build relevant skills and capability across all elements of the age services workforce
  • develop and support current and emerging leaders; 
  • foster and promote innovation in service design and practice;
  • and embed and celebrate a philosophy of excellence and innovation in the age services industry through national awards programs

LASA does this through our delivery partnerships and programs, including innovAGEING, LASA Excellence in Age Services Awards, LASA Retirement Village Manager of the Year Award, LASA Mentoring, and LASA Next Gen (for young leaders).

We also offer non-accredited professional development programs across many topics in age services including governance, clinical governance, leadership, service operations and customer service excellence. Should you wish, we can tailor a unique training offering for your organisation, based on your specific needs.

As of 30 June 2021, LASA’s Aged Care Training Institute will no longer operate as a National Registered Training Organisation (RTO), so the Centre won’t be offering any further accredited training and assessment services, but we are happy to put you in touch with reputable LASA recommended RTOs. Through the Centre, LASA also pursues partnerships with learning institutions, such as universities and TAFEs, where we can add tangible value.
