EduCare Disability Pre-Traineeship Program


Training provider Hessel Group - in collaboration with National Disability Services - is offering 30 South Australians an opportunity to enter the disability sector through an innovative pre-traineeship program.

The five-week EduCare Disability Pre-Traineeship Program allows participants to learn in the workplace and earn four units of accredited training towards a Certificate III in Individual Support.

The program was designed specifically to support unemployed or underemployed South Australians by encouraging them to take the first step towards a meaningful and rewarding role


The cohort will emerge equipped with the knowledge and experience required to begin a formal traineeship and to go on to achieve a full Certificate III in Individual Support. To accommodate this, group training organisations CEG and Maxima have committed to employing a majority of the participants as full-time trainees after they have completed the initial five-week program.
