Pre-traineeship program to support disability services sector

Training provider Hessel Group, in collaboration with National Disability Services, is offering 30 South Australians an opportunity to enter one of the state’s fastest growing industries.

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 innovative pre-traineeship program was designed specifically to support unemployed or underemployed South Australians by encouraging them to take the first step towards a meaningful and rewarding career.

Participants will gain the knowledge and experience required to begin a formal traineeship, moving into a Certificate III in Individual Support. To support 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.
