Re-skilling adults for social care careers
Through an innovative traineeship program, 15 mature-aged job seekers will re-skill for careers in the growing aged care sector.
Developed in partnership with My Care Solution and Enable College, the project will address workforce issues including:
an aging population in need of care
adult workers looking for new careers.
The project will support 20 participants aged 45 and over to undertake pre-apprenticeship training, which will give them a comprehensive understanding of the sector and prepare them to begin their careers caring for elderly South Australians.
At least 15 participants will go on to take up a traineeship and complete a Certificate III in Individual Support.
