The disability sector faces several challenges in securing future of service provision. The supply of a well-trained, experienced workforce will be essential to secure future services. Although hands-on care workers, with a completed secondary education, can obtain a job without experience in many countries, new qualifications are being introduced that will contribute to improving the quality of basic grade care workers. The aim is to balance qualifications with appropriate attitudes and values. Organisations play a role in this preparation through their own training programmes.
