The ANMF (SA Branch)’s education facility ANMEC is offering 20 state and federally funded traineeships to help upskill new and existing staff in a sector facing a chronic workforce shortage.

As a core component of the 12-month traineeships, participants will complete a Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) with ANMEC (the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Education Centre) as a paid employee of an accredited aged care provider.

What does the traineeship program cover?

  • All training costs for the Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)
  • Administration and enrolment fees
  • Ongoing support from ANMEC for the duration of the traineeship
  • Government-funded employer incentives (up to $4,000 per trainee)
  • Additional training for onsite workplace mentors who are employed by the Aged Care Facility
  • Consumables and equipment costs
  • Workplace experience logbooks

ANMEC Aged Care trainees must either be:

  1. Already working in the aged care sector; or
  2. Employed specifically as a trainee by an aged care provider

How to apply?
For individuals seeking to nominate for a traineeship:

  1. If you already work for an aged care provider, discuss the possibility of pursuing the traineeship with your employer; or
  2. If you are currently not employed in the sector, contact an aged care provider to ask about the availability of traineeship opportunities with their organisation.

For aged care providers seeking to nominate new or existing staff for an ANMEC Aged Care Traineeship, contact ANMEC on 8334 1900.

The ANMEC Aged Care Traineeships program opens in April 2019.

The ANMF (SA Branch) and ANMEC are pleased to be involved in making an active contribution to help providers immediately address their staffing shortages by upskilling new or existing staff members to become valuable and qualified aged care employees.
