Student Placements Update
In Victoria, for all preferred Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and Universities that partner with Arcare, please note that regular changes to student placements are imminent in the current COVID-19 environment and Arcare will respond to Department of Health directions accordingly to minimise risk to our clients and community.
As per Directions 15th July, student clinical placements are permitted (if no COVID cases) however, students are restricted to one residence and aged care provider only. Arcare requires that students do not work elsewhere within the community. Students will be required to meet the criteria of not being exposed to recent COVID-19 hotspots and must have a COVID negative swab result prior to attending a placement.
Student Placements in Queensland and New South Wales have been placed on hold.
