What is a Traineeship in Health Services?

A work-based training program designed to provide individuals with practical skills and knowledge required for a specific role within the healthcare industry. Traineeships often combine formal learning through Charter Education and on-the-job training at your workplace, allowing trainees to earn a nationally recognized qualification while gaining valuable work experience.

In the context of aged care and hospitals, a health services traineeship can cover a wide range of roles, including:

  • Aged Care Worker
  • Nursing Assistant
  • Community worker
  • Disability Care Worker

The traineeships usually last between 12 to 24 months, depending on the level of qualification and the nature of the work.
