10 Jan 2019 12:40 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)

Health Services Traineeship 

ConocoPhillips and Charles Darwin University have developed a Health Services Traineeship for an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cohort. This is a comprehensive, 20 week program that involves 12 weeks of classroom time at CDU, and eight weeks of practical on-the-job training. Participants will receive a wage for the duration of the program. Once all competencies have been achieved, participants will obtain a Certificate III in Individual Support, and ideally, will secure full time employment with the host employer. A Certificate III in Individual Support enables participants to work in aged and disability care, areas that are of high need in the NT. 

Entry requirements

There are no minimum admission requirements however applicants who wish to commence this course need to have the required skills and knowledge to undertake the qualification at this level e.g. completion of Year 10 or equivalent and a general command of spoken and written English to be able to meet industry standards for communication.

The selected participants will meet the following criteria:

·          Willing to take on the 20 week training program and full-time work as part of the work placement component,

·          Completion of year 10 (desirable)

·          Ability and willingness to undertake shift work during work placement (if applicable)
