**Why study an aged care course?**

Australia is facing an unprecedented workforce shortage in aged care. The Australian Productivity Commission report, Caring for older Australians (2011), stated that by 2050 the projected workforce deficit in aged care supply would reach almost 280,000.

The Health Care and Social Assistance industry is now Australia’s biggest employer with a workforce of 1.3 million, or 11.4 percent of the total number of people employed. To put that in perspective, the retail trade employs 10.9 percent, construction 9.1 percent and manufacturing 8.6 percent. It is also the fastest-growing industry, particularly in the area of aged care.
