Home Care Workers Gain Qualifications

Thirteen West Coast home care workers will today graduate with their National Certificate in Community Support Skills, Level 2.

Home care workers work in the homes of people who need support to stay in their homes. This could be temporary as in the case of post-operative patients or longer term as in disabled or older people.

This is a significant event for this group of West Coast District Health Board and Access home care staff as for many it was their first formal workplace qualification achieved after many years away from a learning and assessment situation.

This achievement was the result of a collaborative project between home care providers; the West Coast District Health Board and Access, Amida Training and Careerforce ITO.

The graduation ceremony will be held in the Holy Trinity Hall, Greymouth between 5.30 and 6.15 pm on Friday, 27 August 2010.
