Aged Care


Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)

This aged care traineeship will provide you with the skills and knowledge to be effective in an aged care worker role in a residential setting.

You will learn to use a person-centred approach to assist with personal care by following individualised plans to look after the elderly.

By promoting healthy lifestyles and supporting their emotional wellbeing, you will discover how to empower and facilitate the independence of older people.

Many of the learning activities and tasks will encourage learners to reflect on their current work and practices and benefit by the employer by applying these new skills immediately in your organisation.

Course Duration and Delivery

The 12 month program is delivered in shorter, more manageable terms of learning. This allows participants to focus on specific sections of the program at one time.

These terms also provide the perfect ‘check point’ over the duration of the program to monitor and support participant progress.

Each term, the participant enjoys an innovative 360 degree learning experience.

After a program orientation session, participants engage in group workshops and tutorials, workplace training activities, have access to on-demand support as required and concludes with a face to face workplace visit by the trainer to recap the term of learning and observe the participant’s progress.
