Peninsula Villages announces new traineeship program

Peninsula Villages, a provider of aged care and retirement living services on the Central Coast of New South Wales, has announced a new traineeship program in partnership with registered training organisation (RTO) ET Australia.

The Care Partner Traineeship Program is a three-month program that offers a solution to the increasing employment demands within the aged care sector. Upon successful completion of the program, trainees will attain their CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) and will also have potential employment opportunities at Peninsula Villages.

Nicola Burton, Executive Manager – Quality & Organisational Development at Peninsula Villages, said, “The program has been set up to equip trainees with the specific skills required to support and enhance the lives of older people and set themselves up for a fulfilling and secure career in aged care.”

The program directly addresses Peninsula Villages’ recruitment needs, bridging the gap between providing necessary staff and invaluable experience under a hybrid training approach.

Commencing with a week of supernumerary experience in clinical areas, trainees gain an understanding of their role and are given the ability to seamlessly integrate into the Peninsula Villages environment.

Encompassing both theoretical and practical elements, the intensive training model has been specifically designed to prepare future staff for a smooth transition from traineeship to employment.

“This program ensures that our staff are trained in the Peninsula Villages way, which significantly reduces their onboarding time compared to alternative training programs offered,” Burton said.

To qualify for the program, prospective trainees must possess a genuine desire to make a difference and a positive impact on a person’s life. This training is offered under Smart and Skilled. Eligibility criteria apply for the fee-free traineeships.
