Human Services Skills Organisation seeking feedback on mandatory work placement

The Human Services Skills Organisation (HSSO) is seeking to understand the barriers and potential solutions to the completion of Mandatory Work Placement for students studying the Certificate III in Individual Support.

Training providers, employers and students have advised that accessing the mandatory work placements to complete a Certificate III in Individual Support is extremely difficult in the aged care and disability support sectors. To successfully address this problem and overcome the barriers, the HSSO is seeking to fully understand the size and scale of the problem.

RTOs delivering this are encouraged to complete a short survey to help the HSSO quantify the problem and work towards successfully overcoming these challenges. Take the survey here.
