Map highlights aged care training opportunities in China

Published

A new interactive map has been launched to assist Australian aged care providers to identify where there is a high demand for workforce training programs in China.

The Australian Trade and Investment Commission’s China Aged Care Training map provides an overview of needs and training gaps across several provinces in China, where demand for aged care services is increasing.

The map aims to assist Australian providers to get involved and offer their training services to support China’s aged care workforce.

Provinces on the map include Liaoning, Beijing, Shandong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Sichuan, Hubei and Guangdong.

China needs 10 million aged care workers by 2020 to meet the needs of its ageing population, however there are currently less than 1 million employed in the sector and less than 20,000 aged care workers with vocational qualifications, according to Austrade.
