Studied to qualify my 19 years of policing experience after retirement as police then gave no formal qualification. Obtained employment in the aged care industry as a lifestyle assistant. Thank you

Student review
Delivery was good although I felt a little rushed. I think that we really needed to be out and see more real life cases/scenarios and behind the scenes of how organisations actually work, apart from one or two placements/hours. I applied for several job positions soon after and had not been chosen from lack of experience, in which I felt highly disappointed.
