I am speaking to those members who work in the Health & Social Care Sector in Adelaide. I have vast amounts of experience and qualifications within Health & Social Care. I am Care Manager of young adults with Muscular Dtstrophy, but I also provide Health & Social Training on behalf of many private training companies, colleges and care companies as well as an external moderator of Health & Social Care exam papers. In the UK we have a lot of mandatory training courses we have to complete so we can gain a suitable job in Care, for instance: Moving & Handling, Infection Control, Safe Handling of Medicines, SOVA, Equality & Diversity, Dementia Awareness, First Aid and Health & Safety, etc. I can teach/train all carers on these topics.
Is this the same in Adelaide?
In addition almost all these courses now include keys skills, namely literacy and numeracy skills, because the UK government want to target those people who need improve their general education.
To work in Care in Adelaide do you have to complete similar courses?
Is key skills an issue in Adealide?
I would like to work as an Health & Social Trainer once I have emigrated to Adelaide. Is the Health & Social Care legislation different and are their mandatory training courses care companies must provide.
If not - do you think that this is a market I could start up once I have emigrated to Adelaide.
