HITsa staff recently spent 3 days with Little Car Photography to capture some new images at each of our sites.

The team took on the challenge and got into character and we had a great time mucking around.

Sarah from Little Car Photography did a wonderful job of capturing some great shots that we will be able to use in marketing.

This is definitely our favourite...

Employment Options / Hospitality & Food Industry Skills

HITsa partnered with Employment Options in August to deliver a short course in Hospitality and Food Industry skills.

Running from the Adelaide Christian Centre in the city, 11 participants kicked off to learn the basic skills including food hygiene, methods of cookery and using food preparation equipment.

They clearly loved the training and were part of the graduation last week.

If you are interested in learning some cookery basics - check out HITsa Basic Skills for the Food Industry course on our website.

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!"

The annual peak retail season is November to January and it is NOW employers are volume hiring to meet staffing demands. Thousands of workers are recruited between August and October.

Meet the Trainer

Rajesh K has been a Health Trainer at HITsa for over 6 months.

What do you enjoy most about being a trainer?

HITsa is the place to be!

As a trainer, I am using my knowledge to help others develop new skills and improve their lives.

I enjoy supporting staff and team members and being helpful and understanding management.

Why did you choose to work in nursing?

I come from a health background (homeopathy), so found that nursing was the next best option as my career. Whilst nursing, I am helping people with their health.

What do you find are the most challenging things about training?

  • Keeping the learners engaged
  • Helping the students with English as a second language
  • Introducing new information to others
