Case Study

Before engaging with SkillsPlus at Springvale, Michelle was studying Diploma of Nursing.  Michelle completed all the theory parts. However, she struggled to pass the placement requirement of the course. Michelle and John (Employment Consultant) worked together on a new plan which encouraged Michelle to complete an Aged Care course first, then complete the Diploma of Nursing.  Michelle enrolled into an Aged Care course and successfully completed the course. She found a job as a Personal Care Assistant (PCA) straight after finishing the course.  Michelle is very happy with all the support she received from Skillplus. When Michelle got her first pay check, she rang and shared her feelings; unable to describe how happy she was.  John continues working with Michelle in her Post Placement Support phase and Michelle has a plan to enrol into the Diploma of Nursing again in the next 6 months when she gains enough experience as a PCA.
