Carer Career Guidance Project

The Carer Career Guidance Project was delivered by Carers NSW in partnership with TAFE NSW between June 2022 and April 2023, with funding from the Australian Government Department of Employment and Workplace Relations.

The project included individual support and career guidance forums for women carers aged 16-64 years living in NSW, facilitated training opportunities through TAFE NSW and the development of training for the career guidance sector on supporting women with caring responsibilities.

The project also included the co-development of legacy resources designed to continue supporting women carers to recognise, apply and communicate their skills in the recruitment process. The resources below include information shared with carers throughout the project, and reflect what carers shared during the project about their experiences and information needs.
