Career Pathways After Studying Aged Care
If you have a caring attitude, a positive outlook, and a kind and nurturing personality, aged care could be for you! Discover some possible career outcomes after studying the Certificate III or IV in aged care with Academia.
Australia’s Ageing Population
Australia is in the midst of an ever-increasing ageing population, with the number of Aussies aged over 65 and 85 heading in an upwards trajectory since 2007.
We’re living longer, and as a result, the aged care sector is going through some changes.
For example, many older Aussies, in good health, wish to remain in their homes for longer. This has resulted in a demand specifically for community-based care, where carers work in a personal capacity with their client, in their client’s own home.
There’s no better time to enter the rewarding and booming aged care sector. Academia is excited to guide you along the next stage of your journey!
