Aged Care Traineeships


Aged Care Traineeships at Japara

Japara has partnered with Chisholm to offer fully supported aged care traineeships on the Mornington Peninsula which will start in September 2021.
This ‘earn while you learn’ opportunity will offer its participants a pathway to working in aged care with many exciting options in Australia’s growing aged care sector. Successful trainees will receive a Certificate III in Individual Support that, in most cases, can lead to permanent employment at a Japara home.
The paid traineeship is an ideal way of getting to know Japara, your future colleagues, as well as our lovely residents. While the theoretical component will be delivered by Chisholm TAFE, you will be earning while learning at our aged care home in Capel Sound or our aged care home in Rye.
Becoming a Japara trainee means not only laying the groundwork for a safe and rewarding aged care career but it also means that you will get to work with people who truly appreciate your work and who have a wealth of knowledge to share. Plus, there’ll be plenty of laughs along the way.
