Some traineeship pathways available through HITsa include Certificate 3 in Business, Certificate 3 in Hospitality and Certificate 4 in Leadership & Management.

In addition, some short courses can be completed online, making them more convenient for those with other commitments.

HITsa offers a range of short courses which can be explored here.


Qualifications are a great way to get your foot in the door or take the next step in your career. A qualification will teach you practical and industry-specific skills that make you job-ready.

As mentioned above, some qualifications are available through traineeship arrangements.

Do you want to make a difference in your job, but are unsure which direction to go? Have you considered a career as a disability support worker?

Support workers provide emotional, personal, and physical support to people living with a disability. This support is life-changing for people in care as well as their families.

Working in disability care is a highly rewarding job where you can make a difference in someone’s life. If a career in this sector interests you, completing a Certificate 3 in Individual Support (Disability) would be a great step towards getting a job.

Furthermore, read on for more information about disability support workers.

It’s a career with purpose

A career in the disability sector can offer amazing job satisfaction.

Support workers get to make real, positive impacts in the lives of the people they work with.

Every day is filled with opportunities to make a difference when you work in disability care.

What can be more rewarding than knowing you are helping someone live life to their fullest?

Job security

The disability sector offers reliability, stability, and room for career progression.

The demand for qualified support workers has been growing rapidly, and projected job growth of 24.7% over the next 5 years means it will not slow down anytime soon.

If you are looking for a long-term career with room for growth, a job in the disability sector can offer you that.

Work / life balance

Many job opportunities in disability care are part-time and allow you to work flexible hours.

They will often include morning, afternoon, or night shifts, which provide more flexibility when needing to balance other commitments.

Challenging / Diverse

Disability support workers are constantly being challenged and learning something new, about themselves and their clients.

They help clients with a range of tasks such as personal grooming, grocery shopping and social activities – no day is the same.

A role in disability care can be challenging, but you will push yourself to do better and get the best possible outcome for clients.

Ready to make a difference?

Working in the disability sector is an incredibly rewarding job. When you work in disability care, every day is a chance to do something different and make a difference.

As restrictions begin to ease, it may be time to think about equipping your team with the appropriate skills to keep yourself and others safe.

As a business, you need to continue to take the right steps to protect yourself and others. To stop the spread, keep your doors open, and stay COVID safe.

Those who work in a people facing industry such as retail, hospitality and health care settings are at greater risk of exposure.

A great way to keep your business and customers safe is to complete COVID Clean Training.

This training will provide your staff with the skills and knowledge to maintain good hygiene and a clean workplace – keeping COVID safe.

Interested in equipping your team with COVID clean skills? Read on for more information about the training.

What is COVID Clean Training?

COVID Clean Training is a 2-day course that is funded by the State Government for eligible participants.

Participants will learn a range of skills, including hand hygiene practices, effective surface cleaning, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), disposal of contaminated waste, among other skills.

Completing this course will help reduce the risk of COVID infections in the workplace and boost your confidence as restrictions ease.

Why is this training important for people-facing industries?

COVID has affected every sector, however hospitality, retail and health care have been affected significantly.

People who work in these industries face a heightened risk of exposure to COVID-19. Hospitality and retail are often where travellers/tourists frequent to. Whereas those working in aged care facilities or providing at home community or disability services work closely with vulnerable people.

Due to this, staff will come into contact with an extensive amount of people each day which puts them at risk of infection.

Keep your industry safe

While all industries are at risk and need to take precautions, this is even more important for retail and hospitality.

Some precautions you can take as a business are:

  • Equip yourself and staff with COVID Clean Training skills
  • Provide access to gloves, masks, and hand sanitiser
  • Maintain social distance

Want your team to be COVID ready?

Finishing school and deciding what to do can be daunting. But it doesn’t have to be! There are many great career pathways for school leavers, including traineeships and apprenticeships.

Could a traineeship or apprenticeship be right for you? Read on to find out what options are available to you as a school leaver.

Traineeships & Apprenticeships

There are many great reasons why an apprenticeship or traineeship should be on your radar as a school leaver. They provide you with hands-on industry experience in the workplace, as well as in classroom learning through an RTO, such as HITsa.

There are also many other reasons why you may consider a traineeship or apprenticeship.

Try before you buy

Studying a degree at Uni doesn’t give you the opportunity to see what it’s like to work in that industry. Meaning you could potentially find yourself in the wrong field and with a significant HECS debt.

With a traineeship or apprenticeship, you are learning on the job and getting hands on experience in your chosen industry from the very beginning. Which gives you a fair idea on whether that field of work is for you or not – and you won’t be left with a HECS debt if you decide that it’s not for you.

Earn while you learn

Unlike many other post school options, where you will most likely be balancing study and a casual job, trainees and apprentices earn while they learn. You will be learning on the job skills while earning a salary and working towards a nationally recognised qualification.

As a trainee or apprentice, you get to work alongside industry leaders and equip yourself with a range of practical skills – giving you a real career advantage.

Training is flexible

Apprenticeships and traineeships offer great flexibility as they can be completed full time or part time. Apprenticeships generally take between 3 – 4 years to complete, while traineeships can be completed within 6 – 18 months.


When it comes to job hunting, they say it’s who you know that helps. By pursuing an apprenticeship or traineeship, you build a professional network of connections that can assist you after you complete your qualification.

Launch your career as an apprentice or trainee

Completing an apprenticeship or traineeship can give you a big advantage in the workforce, especially when you’re fresh out of school.

You’re able to get hands-on industry experience, earn while you learn and essentially try before you buy. And upon successful completion – you will have a nationally recognised qualification.

Now that you know the benefits of becoming an apprentice or trainee, it’s time to find a pathway that you’re interested in.

HITsa offer a range of courses through trainee/apprenticeship pathways in hospitality, business, and retail. Explore our courses online or speak to our friendly team by calling (08) 8375 2800.
