The disability sector is experiencing a boost in jobs due to the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme. The NDIS is expected to create up to 20,000 jobs in Victoria and fund supports for 105,000 people with a disability.
Abbey McRae and Katie Absolom chose BRACE as their preferred training provider. Both have previously completed qualifications with BRACE, and returned earlier this year to complete their Certificate IV in Disability (CHC43115).
“I wanted to change my career path and already knew from past experience that BRACE is a really good training provider. I like that it is a really welcoming environment where everyone says ‘hello’ to each other. My trainer (Susanne) also organised our practical placements, which was a big plus,” said Katie.
Abbey smiled and nodded, adding “Our trainer was always available. When I needed help, I just contacted her and she always responded. I loved completing my qualification with BRACE.”
Abbey and Katie are now both working for a local disability service provider. They explain that it is very rewarding working with people with disabilities. They enjoy helping people to enhance their independence and become more confident.
