Transition your career
Career transitions may involve relocating or taking a pay cut in the short term. Gain the confidence, knowledge and skills to shift to a new career.
Career Transition Assistance (CTA)
CTA is run by the Australian Government and is for people aged 45 and older to build skills and confidence when applying for jobs.
You register with a Workforce Australia provider and work together to:
- identify your goals and aspirations
- better understand the local job market and the skills needed for those roles
- gain confidence with using technology to search and apply for jobs.
There is also the Skills Checkpoint for older workers. This program assesses your individual skill levels, after which, Checkpoint providers develop a career plan to help identify:
- gaps in your skills if you want to transition to a new career or undertake a new role in your current occupation
- skills you could develop or enhance to increase your employment prospects when searching for a new role.
