Expansion of our role as an assessing authority
In 2012 ACWA was the assessing authority for the occupation of welfare worker only. Over the ensuing years we have undertaken to expand our role to include all relevant occupations to ensure that community work in all its forms is recognised as a profession.

The Ministers for Education and Immigration have now signed off on our submission to assess the final few occupations that make up our fine profession. ACWA is now the assessing authority for professionals migrating to Australia under the occupations: Welfare Worker, Community Worker, Youth Worker, Welfare Centre Manager, Residential Care Officer, Disabilities Services Officer, and Family Support Worker.

In some locations this means regulatory changes. To help you better understand what developments are occurring in your area we have summarised the changes in each jurisdiction. Read more
