AustCare was founded on the belief that every older or disabled Australian should have quality-trained staff caring for their needs.
Over the years, our staff and trainers have helped hundreds of students improve their knowledge of the Aged Care, Home Care and Disability industries. We have a strong focus on person centred support, and aim to encourage students to always uphold a high quality of care in the workplace. As a result, our students have gained employment in some of the best aged care facilities and respite centres in Australia, and grown in confidence and self-esteem. We love celebrating those victories with our students.
We want our students to complete our courses feeling confident and job ready.
That’s why our courses include:
- Extensive manual handling training
- Personal care needs workshops
- Real life scenarios
- Tips for applying for employment
Because of the time we invest in to practical training, our students are recognised in the workplace for their outstanding skills and knowledge.
