Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) has announced a new partnership with Universal Care Training (UCT) to deliver a comprehensive suite of in-person and online training courses for the aged services industry.

“This partnership builds on LASA’s existing courses offered through LASA Aged Care Training Institute,” said Sean Rooney, Chief Executive Officer of LASA.

“LASA Aged Care Training Institute delivers a range of vocational qualifications and skill sets for the age services workforce. Courses are available year round for accredited training and professional development.

“LASA Aged Care Training Institute is a trusted, high quality provider and our courses are responsive and specific to the needs of the aged services industry.

“This partnership with UCT allows LASA to expand how we support our Membership, as part of our commitment to being a strong voice and helping hand for all providers of age services,” he said.

Through the partnership training is available in person and online, including web-based courses.

Training programs can also be developed specifically for individual organisations and delivered on site to its workforce.

UCT specialises in providing training and education resources to the community services sector. This includes aged care, disability support, home and community care, and community transport.

Gregory McCauley, Chief Executive Officer of Universal Care Training, said LASA and UCT have been working together to identify and meet the training needs of the sector.

“Meeting the demands of compliance, professional development and duty of care for all Community Services Sector organisations is our priority. LASA Members now have ready access to a wide range of affordable eLearning courses developed in collaboration with experienced care professionals,” he said.

“UCT’s eLearning courses also include training videos, interactive learning experiences and knowledge based quizzes.

“Employees are able to complete the eLearning courses with self-paced flexibility and convenience using a PC, Pad or other internet enabled device at a time and location that suits them,” he said.
