Welcome to ACWIC's Workforce Planning Tool

This workforce planning tool has been co-designed by ACWIC alongside aged care and workforce planning experts.

The purpose of this tool is to help you to perform a gap analysis of your current direct care workforce so that you can plan your workforce more effectively.

This tool will ask you about your organisation, the people you care for, the services you provide and your current workforce structure. It will then show you where the gaps are in your current direct care workforce based on the information you have submitted.

This gap analysis will help you to plan your current workforce and show you where you need to be more prepared for the future challenges in the aged care sector. You will also be able to look at a predicted forecast for your organisation’s model of care based on simulated emerging trends in the aged care sector.

About the data you provide in this tool

We understand that things change on a regular basis in aged care organisations, so you might not be able to provide fully accurate or up to date numbers about your workforce and the people you care for.

But to get the most accurate workforce gap analysis from this tool, it is important that you provide ‘informed’ data. ‘Informed’ data is data that is based on existing information you have about your organisation, such as staff rosters and annual reports.

The data you provide won’t be used to assess or monitor your organisation’s performance. However de-identified, aggregate data may be used by ACWIC to learn more about supply and demand trends in the aged care sector.

What's next

This tool uses data visualisations to show you the gaps in your current workforce. To help you feel more confident using data visualisations we are first going to show you an example visualisation. Click ‘Get started’ to see this example.
