Throughout this course, you will receive personalised education and training to develop work practices for better client outcomes.
Learning clusters are delivered over 10-week terms, with a weekly commitment of two days.
In addition to this, you will undertake a supported placement at an accredited aged care facility with the guidance of an RMIT trainer. In these sessions, you will practice skills in an industry context and be assessed across a range of settings and tasks.
You will also undertake an independent, 120-hour work placement in an aged care facility and in a disability service setting. You will receive ongoing support while completing these placements, gaining hands-on experience at leading social service organisations.
Assessment will be based on demonstration of skills, the application of knowledge in a workplace context, and how you integrate these skills in preparation for the contingencies and demands of a busy workplace.
