A new initiative for mature job seekers.

Career Transition Assistance is a new initiative to help mature aged job seekers build their confidence and become more competitive in their local labour market.

CTA is targeted at people aged over 45 years, who are registered with a jobactive provider and need additional assistance to apply for jobs as well as training to live, learn and work in an environment where communication and access to information are increasingly through digital technology, social media and devices.

How can Career Transition Assistance help you?

Career Transition Assistance (CTA) is an Australian Government program that provides additional support and training to help mature-aged job seekers get a job. You can read about what’s involved in our service guarantee and find out how we support you in our service delivery plan.

The program is an approved annual activity requirement (AAR) and will fully meet a job seeker’s AAR for the duration of their participation in Career Transition Assistance.

Eligible job seekers will be provided with practical assistance to help them gain the skills they need to move into ongoing employment. These are referred to as Tailored Career Assistance and Functional Digital Literacy.
