The ABC has the none to reassuring news that Katy Gallagher is going to fill the gaps in the ranks of child protection workers by getting uni students to work part time in the area.
Does my failing memory betray me? Wasn’t Katy going to fill these places with social workers from the UK who were just gagging to come live and work in Canberra?
A hint Katy, if you can’t fill the places you’re going to need to offer more attractive pay and conditions. From everything I’ve heard, throwing partially trained students onto the front lines isn’t going to encourage them to stick around once they’ve finished their degree.
