We want to ensure the foundation of the sector is best equipped to meet the needs of young people, families and the community.
To do this we are asking individuals who work with young people to fill out our survey.
Please check through the FAQs below before starting the survey.
The survey could take up to 20 minutes. We encourage you to set aside enough time to complete it in one sitting.
Information provided in the survey will be confidential, it will not be divulged to your employer or third parties. Any identifying questions are optional. All data collected is confidential, and all data used in reports will be de-identified.
You will be asked about your current salary and award level, so you may need to ensure that information is accessible before you start.
We are currently taking stock of the youth sector in the ACT and we need your help. We want to ensure the foundation of the sector is best equipped to meet the needs of young people, families and the community.
This survey offers the opportunity to compare data from the youth sector collected in a similar survey in the ACT in 2010, as well as with NSW youth sector data provided by a NSW workforce survey completed in 2020. This survey will be used to develop a workforce profile, which will be published in a report.
The objectives of the workforce profile project include:
• To better define the nature and extent of the youth work workforce in the ACT;
• To identify and assess qualification and remuneration levels of youth workers in a wide variety of settings including government and non government services, and schools;
• To identify and describe professional development processes available to youth workers and establish a desired workforce profile.
The data collected in this survey will be published in a similar fashion.
