As an aged care worker, you may be asking yourself “what next?” Here we outline common professional development paths taken within the aged care industry.
Upskilling is a great way to stay ahead of industry changes and continue moving forward in your career. To support your career, both State and Federal Government invest in the skills of Australian workers through a range cost-effective training schemes and incentives.
Workplace training is a great way to further upskill without having to take a break from your daily career as a carer. Workplace training lets you develop your knowledge and build key skills that will have you on the path to a fulfilling career while working in your current role – that is, the trainer comes right to your facility.
Many aged care workers seeking to further their careers find the Diploma of Community Services Work (CHC50612) the natural next step.
