ATA Training Work Placement Program
As well as providing hands-on skills through our various ATA courses and nationally recognised training, we also provide a dedicated Work Placement Program. As part of the study necessary for our certificate level qualifications, these programs aim to connect eligible students with local providers with work experience opportunities, setting them up to work in aged care.
Our Certificate III or IV aged and healthcare qualifications include 120 hours of work placement, where you will be assessed for you practical, on the job performance. For those students who are eligible, we work with our expansive network of providers to help place you in an active work experience situation as part of your study. For dedicated students, these placements often lead to real work situations. Please ask about this program and other work opportunities with your enrolment enquiry
