We’re here for you
Whether you’re looking to change careers or to learn a new skill, we can help you get started in the care sector through Wesley Employment & Training.
We’ve created programs where you can learn during school hours so you can still manage your family and care responsibilities. With our flexible study option, it’s never been easier to start your journey in the care sector.
For over 20 years, Wesley Vocational Institute (RTO code 90091) in Wollongong has provided people with education and training in the care sector, supporting people of all ages, regardless of their education or employment background. If you’re interested in building a career in the care or community services sectors, we can help you gain a qualification and become job-ready with the skills and confidence you need to launch your career.
Working closely with local home care, disability and community services providers, we provide work placements so you can develop practical skills and build work experience within a real workplace. Work placements also allow you to work towards your qualification and set you on your ideal career path.
The NSW Department of Education has recognised our organisation as a High Performing Provider. With our training programs, we’re committed to provide opportunities to our students and help you achieve your goals. We work with local service providers in your community, so you can explore employment pathways best suited for you.
