Aged care work placements

Blue Care partners with Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) and universities to provide student placements in our community and residential aged care services, in roles ranging from personal carers to registered nurses and allied health professionals.

Vocational placement is structured learning in a real work environment so students can gain valuable aged care work experience in the practical skills required for their qualification. On the first day of placement, students will receive an orientation to the facility, resources to support students, as well as an introduction to the organisation and the services Blue Care offers.

Blue Care is proud to be a diverse and inclusive employer – everybody is welcome here!

Personal carer placements

We have a preferred panel of RTOs with whom we partner, to take students who are studying their Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing and/or Home and Community) to become a personal carer. Please contact one of these RTOs if you are interested in completing your Certificate III and your student placement with Blue Care.
