The first course, starting February 2014, will be the dual qualification in Certificate III in Aged Care and Home and Community Care (HACC).

Maureen Flaherty, Jewish Care General Manager Community Services, said the new Employment and Education Centre, based at Jewish Care’s St Kilda Road premises, provided a fantastic opportunity for people to develop skills and create pathways to new employment.

Ms Flaherty said a major advantage of studying at the Employment and Education Centre was that work placement and practical assessment to complement study would occur within Jewish Care facilities.

“There is no better way to learn than having work experience at your fingertips, and expertise all around. There is also potential employment at Jewish Care or assistance with job seeking in the industry,” Ms Flaherty said.

She added that the Employment and Education Centre would also conduct employment and career workshops, and offer a range of employment services for job seekers and employers.

Maria Peters, CEO, Chisholm said the partnership with Jewish Care to deliver specialist training was exciting.

“As a quality education and training provider, Chisholm strives to provide greater access and opportunities for all members of our community,”

Ms Peters said. “This partnership will see Chisholm continue to innovate and be responsive to students interested in health and community care.”

The opportunity to study at Jewish Care’s Employment and Education Centre is open to everyone.
