Career Transition Assistance

The Career Transition Assistance program is designed to help mature-age job seekers to build their confidence and skills to become more competitive in their local labour market.

CTA is for people aged 45 years and older to increase their job readiness by identifying their transferable skills and better targeting their job search to local industries and available jobs.

Career Transition Assistance will give job seekers a better understanding of available job opportunities in their local area and support them to tailor applications based on their skills and experience. This program provides practical assistance to develop technology and digital skills to build their confidence to use different types of technology, such as smartphones, tablets, apps, social media and desktop computers, as well as applying for jobs online.

Who will be eligible?

To participate in Career Transition Assistance (CTA), job seekers must be aged 45 years or over, and registered with a jobactive provider. This includes job seekers not in receipt of an Income Support Payment. Those not currently registered with jobactive can talk to a jobactive provider about registering as a volunteer to be eligible for a referral to CTA.
