TAFE and industry collaboration leads to new employment pathway courses

As part of the WA State Training Board's Social assistance and allied health workforce strategy recently announced by the Minister for Education and Training, North Metropolitan TAFE has been collaborating with the Community Services, Health and Education industry training council and seven industry partners to develop two ‘pathway to employment’ programs. 

The new programs, one for aged care and the other for disability care, offer students the opportunity to complete a Certificate II level introduction program through attending training at TAFE and participating in work placements with one of the industry partners — Brightwater, MOSAIC, Nulsen Disability Services, Senses Australia, Bethanie, Juniper or Southern Cross Care. Students who successfully complete the program will be eligible to go on to study the relevant Certificate III course, and may be considered for employment as a trainee by their work placement employer.

North Metropolitan TAFE is running an information session for each of the programs — full details are available on their website.

Further information about the WA State Training Board's Social assistance and allied health workforce strategy is available on their website.
