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-to-three 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.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
