    The training program is a blend of formal classroom training, self-paced learning activities and supervised work placement, which involves face-to-face training at the workplace.

    Classroom Training – An 8-hour classroom session per month is scheduled for the 12-month course duration. Learning activities will reinforce theoretical knowledge, and workplace skills will be practiced and placed into context.

    Self-paced Learning – Students are encouraged to undertake 6 hours per week of self-paced learning throughout the duration of the course. This time is allocated to review your learning for the current and upcoming weeks and undertake research to prepare responses to research-based assessment tasks. Trainer support is available via phone and email when required.

    Work Placement – A minimum of 120 hours of work placement is undertaken throughout the duration of the course. Students must participate in direct support work in at least one aged care or community service organisation. This is a training package requirement and allows you to develop your skills and apply knowledge in the actual workplace. Students are supervised during their work placement by an allocated workplace supervisor.

    Face-to-face Training at Workplace – The Trainer/Assessor schedules two visits to each student at their work placement location, where practical demonstration is observed and assessed.
