I'm looking to study a course in Aged Care, however I'm not sure where to begin. I'm located in Vic and saw that there will be free TAFE courses from 2019 in this article:

Has anyone here studied a Certificate IV in Ageing Support? Were you able to get work easily?

Hi Olivia, this may be a good question to post on the Activities for Seniors facebook group:

Give that a go!

Hi Olivia, I called about a dozen aged care homes and asked where they like to hire people from (ie, which course they think is the best) and a lot recommended LASA (Leading Aged Care services Australia) through the University of Melbourne. The course was brilliant and the teachers were really inspiring. I highly recommend. The only thing was that you had to have a job in the industry already (!) as you need to be mentored throughout the course by your boss. I went for a job without any experience and was accepted and can't recommend it enough. Hope that helps!!
