These facilities are in areas close to public transport and many have access to onsite parking.
Placements are generally full-time (120 hours in total) and are completed on weekdays, which not only allows students an opportunity to develop their learnt skills but an experience that could lead to gaining employment.
National Police Check
Aged care is an occupation that has the responsibility of caring for and supporting the health and wellbeing of our elderly. Caring for such people is a full-time and sensitive job. People employed in such positions of caring for the elderly are required to have a current Police check.
The Australian Government by enabling the Police Check requirements ensures that the health, safety, and rights of the vulnerable persons in the community are not infringed upon. Police Checks aim to strengthen the meticulous employment process for the vulnerable in Australia.
h&h trainers and staff will assist you in completing and obtaining your police check.
