Beaufort and Skipton Health Service have been named as a finalist in the ‘Small Employer of the Year’ and the ‘Employer Award for Apprenticeship Development’ categories of the 2023 Victorian Training Awards.
The Victorian Training Awards recognise excellence in the vocational education sector, celebrating the achievements of apprentices and trainees, students, teachers, trainers, employers and training providers throughout the state.
Programs were developed through traineeships and apprenticeships to upskill new and existing staff to grow and retain our workforce. Being able to provide paid work with study to further qualifications has assisted in retaining and attracting staff to fill vacancies across both Beaufort and Skipton sites.
Traineeships for several sectors were developed and implemented, including Diploma of Nursing, an apprenticeship up skilling cooks through a Certificate III in Commercial Cookery, and a Diploma in Community Health for community case managers.
