Aged Care Package (7 Courses)
Australia’s diverse and growing population is also an ageing one and we’ve never been in greater need of dedicated, compassionate and qualified carers. We need people who can give elderly individuals the help they deserve and assist them to age with dignity, respect and procure quality care that will improve their well-being. In Australia, the life expectancy is increasing and 1 of 7 individuals are 65 years and older. There are 1.3 million consumers of aged care and around 366,000 in the aged care workforce. The need for prepared and compassionate aged care workers is evident. So, if you have the disposition and the motivation to provide ageing individuals with a high-level of emotional, physical and personal support, then our Aged Care Package with 7 courses is the perfect place to start.
With the future in mind, LEARNT courses will get you qualified and job-ready to work in the aged care industry and equip you with the skills to perform aged care assistance with substantial knowledge in a practical and engaging way.
