This course includes an integrated work placement component of a minimum of 120 hours. Students who enrol in our Individual Support course generally complete their practical placement with Bentons Lodge, Village Glen or Regis Aged Care. It is required that our students undergo a National Police Check prior to commencing the practical placement. Practical placement may not be possible if a check that is carried out contains adverse outcomes. In this instance, you may not be able to complete your qualification and your employment opportunities may be affected. If you are aware of, or concerned about anything that may appear on a Police Check, please discuss this at your enrolment interview.
