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.

Career Transition Assistance (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.

CTA 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.

Where is it available?

CTA is available nationally to job seekers.

Search for a CTA provider in your area.

Who will be eligible?

To participate in CTA job seekers must be aged 45 years or over and can be referred by their Employment provider, NEST provider, or by the Department’s Contact Centre (regardless of whether you are in receipt of income support or not).

Search for a jobactive provider in your area.

Job seekers not in receipt of Income Support Payments may be able to participate in CTA. To find out more contact the NCSL on 1800 805 260 (free call from land lines) or email nationalcustomerserviceline@dese.gov.au.
