School-Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs)

We are offering four (4) local secondary students in Year 10-12 during 2023 the opportunity to apply for a clinical traineeship position, working one day per week (THURSDAYS) at NHW – Illoura Aged Care facility, whilst completing their secondary studies.

Students accepted into this program, apply to study a Certificate III in Individual Support – Aged Care. A nationally recognised qualification in the health care industry.  This traineeship would replace one school subject during the 2023 school year and can contribute credit towards VCE or VCAL studies.

Upon completing this certificate, participants will have acquired skills and theory within the healthcare sector, allowing them to work as a Personal Care Assistant in Aged care.  This position would suit students interested in working with our elderly residents to make a difference in the quality of their lives, while acquiring increased career, study and employment options.

Whilst completing this certificate, trainees would work directly/hands-on with the residents, under the full supervision of an NHW nursing staff member. Duties would include assisting to provide all daily hygiene needs such as showering, grooming, dressing, toileting and managing incontinence, assisting residents to eat and to mobilise. Trainees, with staff support, will be caring for residents with high levels of disability and some who may have dementia.

All students will complete core study units including work health safety, infection control and confidentiality. Students will also complete electives related to health care including, provide support to people living with dementia, working effectively with older people and providing support to meet personal care needs. The theory component of this course is delivered by The Centre and all relevant RTO fees will be covered by Kestrel.

Throughout the duration of this School Based Traineeship you will be provided with ongoing support by all parties involved.

All students are required to submit an application via Kestral’s website, including your most up-to-date resume and a cover letter addressing the key selection criteria for the position.
