Understanding our workforce

Your Workforce, Your Future: 2016 Survey Report: Queensland’s Child Protection and Family Support Workforce (PDF; 1.43MB) is now available.

The QFCC and the Health and Community Services Workforce Council partnered to develop the survey report, aimed at building a better understanding of the child and family support workforce.

The Your Workforce, Your Future infographic (PDF; 86 KB) provides key highlights from the report, including:

    • A young (72% under 50 years), feminised (73%) workforce
    • A sector of small organisations (median workforce size 24)
    • A qualified workforce (68% of organisations set minimum employment qualifications).

The survey report was developed from 86 responses to a survey tool to capture quantitative and qualitative workforce data from government and non-government organisations.

The results have informed the development of the Strengthening our sector – a strategy for working together for a responsive, sustainable service system across the child and family support sector.

Key findings of the survey report will also be used to guide the development of a career and capability framework for the sector – a tool aimed at improving how the sector attracts, retains and develops its workforce.
