Hello all, I thought I would pass on this bit of information for people who are emigrating over here and wish to work in a care workers role.
www.cstdc.com.au has a flexible training programme where you can train on line to complete a Cert 2, Cert 3 or Cert 4 in community care. This is a great opportunity for people to train in this field while waiting for their visa. Care workers are widely required but you will not be able to work in this field without completing a minimum Cert 3. This company trains for people who wish to work in the community not in Care Homes that you will require a minimum of Cert 3 in aged care.
I have found my NVQ's were not recodnised and I had to retrain to work in the community as a carer. I originally trained in Cert 3 and now are near completing my Cert 4 with the company above. The company I work for is now sponcering me to become an Enrolled Nurse, which will give me a wider scope with my nursing career.
Hope this helps someone
