Career Transition Assistance (CTA) is a program for mature-age job seekers aged 45 years and over, providing practical assistance to increase employability and competitiveness in the local job market.

Job seekers registered with a jobactive Provider are eligible to be Referred to CTA by their jobactive Provider. Volunteer job seekers, without mutual obligation requirements, are also able to participate in CTA. CTA and jobactive Providers are expected to collaborate to ensure appropriate referrals and that each Participant achieves the maximum benefit possible.

CTA runs for eight weeks, and can be used to meet a job seeker’s mutual obligation requirements and will fully meet a job seeker’s Annual Activity Requirement during participation in CTA.

CTA commenced as a Trial in five Employment Regions and rolled out nationally on 1 July 2019. This Guideline applies to CTA Providers delivering services under the Career Transition Assistance Panel Deed 2019-2022 only. CTA Providers delivering services under the Career Transition Trial Panel Deed 2018-2022 should refer to the Delivering the Career Transition Assistance Trial Guideline.
