Student placements

Japara is committed to supporting the development of the next generation of workers to provide the highest standards of care to residents in the aged care sector. As part of this commitment we offer clinical placements to a variety of aged care and nursing students each year.

Student PCA/ECA/AIN placement


Due to the large number of facilities and requests we receive we have developed our own system for processing student PCA/ECA/AIN placement requests.

All requests must be made by the training organisation, as we require company information to create the contracts.

You will need to download the 3 files below; the first document is the excel request form, please ask your training organisation to fill it in and send it back to me as an excel form.

The second document outlines the information about the classroom delivery of the Certificate III in Individual Support Services.

The third document is about our processes and is also for the training organisation. We do not offer placements to online or distance education courses.
