  • The role of State, Territory and Commonwealth Governments in providing and implementing a coordinated strategic workforce development plan for the NDIS workforce
  • The interaction of NDIS workforce needs with employment in adjacent sectors including health and aged care
  •   The opportunities available to, and challenges experienced by people with disability currently employed, or wanting to be employed, within the NDIS workforce, and other matters.
