Job preparation support for mature job seekers

Career Transition Assistance supports mature-aged job seekers to build skills and confidence to be more competitive in local job markets.

Career Transition Assistance (CTA) is for people aged 45 and older, 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 devices and social media.

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.

You can read about what’s involved in our service guarantee and find out how we support you in our service delivery plan.
