This Part contains information on the Career Transition Assistance Scheme. The Scheme assists members with career transition when they separate from the ADF after continuous full-time service.
Note: In the total workforce model, ceasing continuous full-time service may be described as ceasing service in Service category 6 or 7 or ceasing service in Service category 3, 4 or 5 and also on Service option C.
Effective career transition is a shared responsibility. It is mainly up to the member to start preparing well before their intended date of separation.
The Career Transition Assistance Scheme is available to all members of the Permanent Forces and members of the Reserves who have been on continuous full-time service.
