CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) Graduate Over the Moon

Recent health graduate Irene L has shared her experience of her time training with HITsa:

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone at HITsa Training & Employment for the support I have received whilst undertaking the CHC33015 Certificate III Individual Support (Ageing). The staff were very helpful, lovely and friendly.

I found the online modules very easy to complete, with plenty of time allocated to do so. The in-class training & assessment days that follow each online module are incredibly helpful as the trainers encourage group participation and discussions.

HITsa’s Workplace Coordinator Jeanette found a Residential Care facility for my placement very soon after my interview – only 5 minutes from my house which was amazing!

I was well supported at Resthaven Marion by all staff members. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learnt so much from my time there. The work placement really cements the theory you learn in class, to the practical experiences you gain while being supported within the industry.

The weekly phone calls and a work placement visit from a HITsa Trainer was so valuable as it enabled me to feel confident and very supported.

I enjoyed getting to know the residents at Resthaven and was offered employment after work placement. I am about to embark on a new journey within a new career and feel so lucky and grateful.

I highly recommend HITsa Training & Employment and encourage everyone to use their services. My career as a support worker is about to begin which has made a huge difference for my future”.

HITsa Health student gains employment in Aged Care sector

HITsa takes pride in supporting its students to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Certificate III in Individual Support [CHC33015] includes a 120 hour work placement. After completing the theory component of training, HITsa’s Coordinator Jeanette sources suitable work placement for students. This is done by matching each student to an employer that considers their individual needs and circumstances.

Jeanette sees her students and the various barriers they face on a day-to-day basis, which can sometimes hinder opportunities for employment.

Please meet Ting (pictured right) who has not only completed her qualification, but has successfully gained employment at an aged care facility suited during her work placement. We couldn’t be more proud of Ting, who speaks English as her second language.

Ting could not contain her excitement and is ever so grateful to all at HITsa as she is now employed and living independently.

In her own words, “when I started my course, I did not expect to pass, but look at me now, I have a job and I’m so happy. Thank you!”

Individual Support Student Workplace Visits

HITsa’s trainers take part in the workplace component of each student’s Individual Support qualification.

Once all theory and practical training has been completed, HITsa’s Workplace Coordinator Jeanette matches students with workplaces, where they complete the workplace component of their qualification.

HITsa trainer Corinna had the pleasure of visiting student Aleasha during her work placement at the Lotus Project, Gawler.

Aleasha took pride in showing Corinna around the workplace, interacting with clients and a tour of the farmyard to meet the animals and see the gardens.

Aleasha is in her element during her time at the workplace, given the opportunity to begin her work experience by doing something she loves.

HITsa trainer Corinna had the opportunity to visit Laticia B at her work placement with Gawler Grande Views.

This photo was taken during Laticia’s last week of placement. The smile says it all – she had the experience of being in a workplace environment, doing something she enjoys.

Laticia is passionate about being a part of the care industry and is taking the initiative to engage in employment opportunities at an aboriginal facility near her home.

HITsa wishes you all the best for your bright future ahead.
