Federal Budget Announcement 2024 – the outlook for Altura Learning

May 15, 2024 |

The recent budget announcement detailing the Albanese Labor Government’s investment in quality aged care is a pivotal development for organisations like Altura Learning. This significant financial commitment, outlined by The Honourable Mark Butler MP, Minister for Health and Aged Care, earmarks $111.0 million to enhance the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission’s capabilities and an additional $1.4 billion towards upgrading technological systems and digital infrastructure across the sector.

Paul Goudie, Altura Learning CEO commented: “For Altura Learning, these investments are not just numbers; they represent a future where the education and training of carers are prioritised. The allocation of funds for the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission aligns with Altura’s goal of ensuring that carers receive specific training that meets a high standard of excellence. This focus on quality assurance and safety is crucial to Altura Learning’s mission of enhancing the skills and knowledge of those providing care.

Furthermore, the investment in technology and digital infrastructure is particularly relevant for Altura Learning. The shift towards digital solutions is an opportunity to innovate how education and training are delivered to carers. With an enhanced digital infrastructure, Altura can develop more robust and accessible learning platforms, ensuring that carers have the necessary resources to provide exceptional care.”

In summary, the government’s investment in quality aged care underscores the importance of the work done by Altura Learning. It provides a solid foundation upon which Altura can build and expand its offerings, ensuring that carers are well-equipped to meet the needs of older Australians. This investment is a step forward in achieving a more integrated, quality-focused aged care system that benefits all Australians, aligning closely with Altura Learning’s vision and objectives in the sector.
