Making a difference is just the beginning

With 1 in 7 Australians aged 65 or over, there is a large community of people that need individual support and care. As a result, there are increasing opportunities to work with older people in many areas.

If you are committed to caring for the elderly and helping them to improve their health, well-being, and independence, you can gain the knowledge and skills needed for a career in individual support and aged care.

Whether you’re already in the field or are looking to start a career in aged care, you can gain skills and knowledge in our purpose-built fully equipped on-site practical rooms. Our expert staff and state-of-the-art facilities provide students with the opportunity for skills development in real-to-life settings.
