When students are attending Individual Support (Ageing) or Ageing Support work placement they must wear a student uniform at all times. You can purchase an InterCare black polo shirt in week 7 of your course with us. The uniform consists of the following:

Plain black pants or slacks. No denim, cargo pants or track suit pants.

Black enclosed comfortable footwear. Eg: similar to a school shoe or a nursing shoe.

Student placement will be organised on behalf of the student by InterCare Training. The student will be allocated placement within a 45 minute radius of the course location (public transport is not taken into consideration within this timing). Student placement is non negotiable and must be completed within a 3 week period Monday to Friday. No weekend work is required.

The student must hold a current valid Level II in First Aid to commence their work placement. First Aid is included in our Certificate III in Individual Support, Certificate IV Ageing Support and Certificate IV in Disability courses. The student has two attempts at completing their First Aid competences and if unsuccessful or failure to attend the student will occur a $99 re-booking fee.

We will endeavour to issue certificates within 30 days once a student has handed in all units/modules, completed their 3 week work placement, completed the Level II First Aid and marked competent.

A clear and current police check is required from every student to complete the work placement component of their course. All students completing a qualification must have a clear and current police check by week 7 of their course to receive their work placement allocation. Failure to do so will result in your placement being cancelled or postponed. A national police check will cost around $52.00.

A Working with Children’s Check is required from all students who are completing the Certificate IV in Disability. This is required in week 7 of their course to receive their work placement allocation. Failure to do so will result in your placement being cancelled or postponed.
A Working with Children’s Check will cost around $105.00.
