GOSFORD, Australia - Feb. 13, 2014 - PRLog -- Jonathan Davis, Executive Director at the College said “I am delighted that Kerry has joined the team to develop an area of provision which we believe will see substantial growth over the next five years.  Local economic and demographic data shows an increasing demand for care workers and care assistants as more people look to retire on the Central Coast.”

Kerry said “I am really excited by the role and developing and delivering high quality training for individuals interested in a career in Care and Disability. We have just developed a combined Certificate IV in Aged Care and Disability which we are really excited about because it will provide opportunities to gain employment in both industries.

“We also offer a Certificate III in Business Administration (Medical), a Certificate IV in Leisure and Health and a Certificate III in Aged Care.

“I have met a number of care providers on the Coast who have expressed a need for tailor-made training to improve the skills of their staff. In response, we are looking to develop a short course in consumer directed care in response to changes being introduced in 2015 which will see individuals given the choice as to who provides their care.

“We are keen to hear from individuals looking to develop a career in aged care or employers looking to up skill their staff” Kerry said.
