How does it work?

What is a Candidate-Centred Approach?

This approach is where candidates (in this case – you) are put in the centre of the RPL process (as opposed to the Registered Training Organisation dictating the process).

The goal of candidate-centred approach is for the assessor to build the supportive / mentoring relationship with you, in order to achieve the following:

  • A supportive process
  • Minimize the collection of paperwork
  • Use conversion and observations as the main means of collecting evidence
  • Using your workplace not the classroom to observe or enhance your skills and knowledge
  • An open and transparent assessment process, in which you are fully supported by an assessor

Government Funded for:

  • Australian citizens who have been employed with Meditech
  • Staffing, Colbrow Care or Regal Health for more than 12 months (consecutively)
  • Is employed as Permanent Part Time (PPT) or would like to switch from Casual to PPT
  • Have worked a regular pattern of hours on an ongoing basis for at least the last 6 months of their first 12 months of employment
  • Can commit to continuing this (or greater) regular pattern of hours as a permanent employee without significant change
  • Willing to become a Permanent Part Time Employee
  • We are happy to consider casual staff to undertake traineeships if they are willing to considering converting to PPT.

Why consider a Permanent Part Time position?

Part-time employees get the same minimum entitlements as a full-time employee, but on a pro- rata basis. A part time employee:

  • Works set hours and days each week
  • Great work-life balance
  • Ongoing employment
  • Additional shifts
  • Personal or sick leave
  • Annual leave
  • Long service leave
  • Parental leave
  • Public holidays
  • Paid notice upon termination
  • Community service leave
  • 10 days paid family and domestic violence leave. This isn’t pro-rated.

Who is a casual employee? A casual employee:

  • No guaranteed hours of work per week
  • Works irregular hours
  • Can end employment without giving notice
  • No job security
  • Roster provided at the last minute
  • Unable to make other plans and commitments
  • Unpaid carer’s leave
  • They don’t get sick leave
