#POWER OF TAFE: Industry Partnerships
Nurturing nursing talent: Greenslopes private hospital and TAFE Queensland’s successful partnership
Over 15 years ago, Greenslopes Private Hospital in Brisbane articulated two key problems – a shortage of enrolled nurses, and the time spent teaching new graduates the ‘Greenslopes way.’
Working collaboratively with TAFE Queensland, a solution – “Grow Your Own Workforce” – was developed to train enrolled nurses in a Diploma of Nursing wholly on-site in the workplace.
From classroom to caregiving: Capecare and South Regional TAFE boost aged care workforce in regional community
Beautiful Busselton, 230 km south of Perth, attracts many retirees seeking a relaxed coastal lifestyle. But that ageing demographic and regional location helps contribute to labour shortages.
How did Capecare, the largest independent aged care provider in the area, attract new staff for existing and planned facilities?
They partnered with South Regional TAFE to deliver an ‘intensive-start’ traineeship.
From 2020 to 2022, 24 trainees aged 19-59 years completed a Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing), with all gaining employment as carers upon completion.
