Where has the year gone???

News Where has the year gone???

It’s already August! Where is the year going? Time flies when you are having fun and we have been having a lot of fun at Bestwest Care this year.

Just recently members of our staff under took the Mental Health First Aid course.  Bestwest Care staff are always keen to undertake new training and found this opportunity extremely rewarding.  Head over to our Facebook page to see a picture of our staff with their certificates – great work ladies!    We will be taking names of people who are interested for an October intake for the Mental Health First Aid. If you are interested please contact the office to put your name down on 9439 1673.

Our renovations have seen an increase in the number of training courses we can offer and our students are making the most of all of the opportunities we have to study the Certificate III Individual Support as well as our one day short courses.

Evening classes are now being run for Certificate III Individual Support which has assisted numerous students who have work during the day to attend the evening sessions and work towards becoming part of the aged care and disability industry.

Bestwest Care is also working alongside Jobs and Skills WA to assist individuals obtain their certificate in Individual Support in Ageing.  This great initiative assists job seekers to come to Bestwest Care with funding and complete their certificate without unnecessary financial burden.  If you would like to know if you qualify for this funding please contact your employment provider or Centerlink to discuss your eligibility.

Weekend courses are now offered for some of our short courses and we have been pleasantly surprised by the positive feedback, these weekend courses have received.  We understand how hard it is to attend mandatory training during the week and trying to juggle work around it.  The weekend courses help ease this pressure and means you needn’t  miss out of work to attend training.

Before we know it the warm weather will be here and the talk of Christmas holidays will begin! Maybe now is the time to start thinking about what changes you want to make for 2019.  Is it going to be the year you start your new career in the rewarding industry of aged and disability care?
