10 New Graduates
Disability and Aged Care support services in the Central West will benefit from recent training conducted by OCTEC Limited that saw 10 participants graduate with the nationally-recognised qualification, CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing), on Tuesday November 27.
The training further progresses development of the community services workforce in the Central West, increasing skills and knowledge levels, and in turn, the overall quality of care of our loved ones.
“The training was specifically targeted at local individuals who were looking for new and exciting careers in the industry.
“OCTEC’s aim was to provide participants with the most ‘hands-on’ experience that OCTEC has delivered to date, including 6 weeks work experience in local facilities,” said OCTEC’s RTO Operations Manager Lea Stevenson.
All graduates have secured employment in the local area which is further testament to the quality of training that OCTEC provides and its success in ensuring that graduates are job ready from day one.
“Many participants at the graduation expressed their appreciation and excitement about the course, especially the opportunity to exchange experiences and practices with their new colleagues in the workplace” said OCTEC Trainer and Assessor, Kylie Johnston.
OCTEC acknowledges the support of the NSW Department of Industry for its part in funding the training as well as the local facilities that provided work experience opportunities for the training participants.
