We all know training is important (especially here at Aged Care Training)! The great news is the Victorian government agrees. Victoria has undergone a vocational education revolution and now guarantees a subsidised training place for EVERY VICTORIAN who does not have a post school qualification, or who wants to gain a higher level qualification than they already hold. This is called Skills First.
There has never been a better time for individuals wanting to skill up regardless of the reason. To get a job, to be better at their existing job, upgrade their skills to help get a promotion! As long as the eligibility criteria are met the government is committed to helping Victorian’s up skill.
It really is a major commitment to lift the skills base of Victoria. What makes the program so ground breaking is that is provides educational opportunities across the entire community.
The opportunities that fall under Skills First are a big win for Victorian businesses and employers as well. Under the same program employers can help their people up skill and receive brilliant training.
It is all about up-skilling and encouraging Victorian’s to get a higher level of qualification than they already hold and be the best you can be.
