Student Preparation for Work Placement

  • Placement will occur at the end of the face to face training delivery.
  • Before placement, students will have been assessed as ‘work ready’ and will have the ability to work on their own.
  • Work placement (if required or requested), will take place in an accredited facility that is appropriate to the student’s needs.
  • Students are placed on their own, and supervised by the facilities representative and ANTS trainers and assessors
  • The facilities can now put students into practice and develop their newly acquired skills.

Client Protection

ANTS has a responsibility to protect members of the public, residents and other students from harm. Students who are assessed as presenting a significant risk to themselves or others or who have committed a breach of discipline during work placement will be offered further education or may be prevented from undertaking or continuing the placement.

Workplace and employment

We cannot guarantee an employment outcome. However, our long-standing relationships with many facilities, combined with the training, will certainly go a long way towards gaining employment. We have many students who have achieved success and pride ourselves on leading them to the best possible outcomes.

But I am extremely glad that I took the course and chose ANTS to help me fulfill my goal and broaden my horizons. It truly gave me a valuable very rewarding and learning experience. It’s been absolutely amazing from the directions, teachers and the staff have given.

I got a nice job after finishing my placement at the same facility where I was posted. It is a full packaged service with experienced and qualified tutors, good learning environment, well equipped labs, and well managed classrooms.The staffs over here are so helpful, supportive, and motivative. Student from here has a higher chance of getting better job opportunities. So, I highly recommend everyone to join ANTS for your better career.

I have always dreamed about becoming a nurse and wanted to get my foot in the door to get a feel of what it would be like. I am so glad I signed up and completed my certificate III in Individual support with ANTS as it has inspired me to further develop my skills.

The teachers are really supportive and go out of their way to help in any way they can.

Studying with ANTS has allowed me to continue work while I study, and the environment is comfortable supportive and positive.
