General: Are you currently looking after your parents or grandparents? Or do you work in the aged care industry and want to upgrade your knowledge and skills? If so, this is a perfect course for you.

Life is unpredictable, and you never know what is around the corner.  Getting old is a fact of life and one day it will happen to all of us!  What about when you have to look after the older generation? It can be very challenging, whether they are family or not.  At ITHEA, we understand.  That’s why our industry experts have created this aged care training course, to help prepare you for the road ahead.

More Content. More Skills. More Value.

The aged care system caters for Australians aged 65 and over (and Indigenous Australians aged 50 and over) who can no longer live without support in their own home. The sector provides older Australians with a range of different services, allowing them to access appropriate levels of care when and where they require it as they age. In delivering aged care services to the Australian community, the sector is both a vital supporter of the comfort and dignity of older Australians as well as an important contributor to the Australian economy.

As a service industry, the sector has a sizeable workforce occupying a diverse range of roles – from nurses and care workers to management and administrative staff. The sector also draws on a large network of volunteers and community, government and private sector organisations that support the delivery of aged care services.

More than one-quarter of a million people (282,000) were using residential care (permanent or respite), home care or transition care services in Australia on 30 June 2018. In addition, in 2017–18 more than 783,000 people were assisted in their homes under the Commonwealth Home Support Program. This is a growing industry with considerable job opportunities across Australia. Please check with your state department for the relevant checks and permissions that may be required to work in this industry.
