Improve Training in Aged Care project
CS&HISC has been funded by the Department of Social Services to undertake a project to 'Improve Training in Aged Care'. This project focuses on sectors that closely align with Aged Care and fall under the Direct Client Care grouping which includes:
- Aged Care
- Allied Health Assistance
- Alcohol and Other Drugs
- Community Services and Management
- Health Services Assistance
- Home and Community Care
- Leisure and Health
- Mental Health
- Nutrition / Dietetic Assistance
These industries and associated qualifications have been identified as requiring significant change and extensive development work. Therefore, CS&HISC will be running a series of free forums to consult with industry stakeholders on the changing requirements of workers in Aged Care and other Direct Client Care industries. The information collected will build on exisiting Training Package review work, inform areas where new components for Training Packages should be developed and assist in the development of Companion Volumes to support updated Training Packages.
CONSULTATION FORUMS NOW OPEN
During June - July 2014 CS&HISC held forums in the capital cities which were attended by over 300 stakeholders. Thank you for your attendance, feedback gathered will inform development of the Direct Client Care qualifications.
This project is scheduled to be completed by 30 June 2015 however the full review is an ongoing process, please ensure you check these pages regularly for updates.
