Matthew Coombs- July 2015


“At 53 after years in retail and raising my children, it was time for me to take a new direction.  I wanted a job that I felt was worthwhile, this led me to aged care.

I had no experience and was concerned that I would get no opportunity due to my age.

However, I came across a traineeship programme for aged care run by HTA and applied, was accepted and I am on my way.  I was given the opportunity to do my work experience at Tuohy Aged Care Facility.  The first day I knew that I had made the right choice.  I finished my work experience and was accepted for a traineeship.

I have had a great experience to date, both the staff at HTA and Tuohy have been friendly and helpful.  I have felt accepted and although I’m the new kid on the block, I feel like part of the team.”

Anne Wade – June 2014


“Hi, had never worked in aged care in the past but had thought about it.  After seeing an ad for aged care with HTA, I thought why not give it a go.  I found HTA to be very supportive and enjoyed training with them.  I have now gone on to do my Certificate IV with them.

Through my traineeship I got hands on experience leading to employment with Hall & Prior.”

Sam Elliott – June 2014


“HTA have always come across so professional and concerned about their trainees.  Having never worked in aged care, I’ve found their support invaluable and this also carried over to my placement at Tuohy Nursing Home.  Have gotten the support, flexibility and hands-on training that has complemented the education training side of HTA.”
