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 2-3 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.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
