New programme to assist care and support workers


Wintec, Wednesday, 06 September 2017

Current and future care and support workers needing to qualify to obtain employment or access higher pay rates can now study at Wintec thanks to an affordable training course.

Wintec Centre director for Health and Social Practice Angela Beaton says the decision to make training available and more accessible is a response to the outcome of the Care and Support Workers Pay Equity Settlement.

“The Level 4 Certificate in Health and Wellbeing, Social and Community Services is a new and essential qualification at Wintec for current and future workers to pathway their career, and earn higher pay rates.”

“In developing this new qualification, we’ve considered industry requirements, the need for care and support workers to work and study at the same time, and individual learning styles.

“We’ve responded to this by integrating flexible study options, offering different combinations of online delivery, work integrated learning and face to face tutorials, catering to people already in care and support work roles or seeking work in the industry.”
