Work Placement Helpful Tips

Overview

InterCare Training aim to assist all students to make the most of their course. Below are our full qualifications;

  • CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)
  • CHC43015 Certificate IV in Ageing Support
  • CGHC43115 Certificate IV in Disability
  • CHC43415 Certificate IV in Leisure and Health

All of our full qualifications have work placement included! This gives you the opportunity to work in a real environment and get the experience you need to begin in the workforce.

When students are attending Individual Support (Ageing) or Ageing Support work placement they must wear a student uniform at all times.

The uniform consists of the following:

  • Black polo t-shirt or shirt with name badge (supplied by InterCare) – must have a collar.
  • Plain black pants or slacks. No denim, cargo pants, leggings or track suit pants.
  • Black enclosed comfortable footwear. Eg: similar to a school shoe or a nursing shoe – no runners.

Placement allocations:

Student placement will be organised on behalf of the student by InterCare Training. The student will be allocated placement within a 45 minute radius of the course location (public transport is not taken into consideration within this timing). Student placement is non negotiable and must be completed within a 3 week period Monday to Friday. No weekend work is required.

First Aid

The student must hold a current valid Level II in First Aid to commence their work placement. First Aid is included in our Certificate III in Individual Support, Certificate IV Ageing Support and Certificate IV in Disability courses. The student has two attempts at completing their First Aid competences and if unsuccessful or failure to attend the student may incur a $99 re-booking fee.

Issuing of Certificates

We will endeavour to issue certificates within 30 days once a student has handed in all units/modules, completed their 3 week work placement, completed the Level II First Aid and marked competent.

Police Check

A clear and current police check is required from every student to complete the work placement component of their course. All students completing a qualification must have a clear and current police check by week 7 of their course to receive their work placement allocation. Failure to do so may result in your placement being cancelled or postponed. A national police check will cost around $52.00.

This can be organised via the InterCare/NCC Police check Service.

Working with Children’s Check

A Working with Children’s Check is required from all students who are completing the CHC43115 Certificate IV in Disability. This is required in week 7 of their course to receive their work placement allocation. Failure to do so may result in your placement being cancelled or postponed.
