We are proud to provide a training programme in conjunction with South West Tafe in Victoria for prospective staff members. Participants receive their Certificate III in Aged Care as well as on-the-job training from experienced staff. Trainees learn about working with us and learn the skills and manner we expect from our staff.
The programme is run as an intense three week induction course followed by three hours of class room training per week for six to eight months whilst working at one of our Victorian facilities. At the end of the programme, successful participants are offered ongoing employment with us.
The programme covers principles of aged care and familiarises participants with other aspects of the aged care industry such as ongoing compliance and continuous improvement. Trainees cover areas such as:
- Infection control
- Manual handling
- Personal hygiene
- Dementia specific care
