Wesley Traineeship Program

Establishing a traineeship program can help you expand and bring new skills into your business.

What is a traineeship?

Traineeships combine practical work with structured training to give your existing or new staff a nationally recognised qualification and the experience they need to excel in their career.    The training is funded by the Australian Government in addition to offering various incentives to the employer (depending on location).  The incentives may include a payroll tax exemption during the period of study.   In WA it is funded by the WA Government Department of Training and Workplace Development.

Wesley Traineeships generally run over 12 months.   Wesley have formulated a unique Traineeship Model which combines face-to-face learning in crucial medical units, E-Learning programme and self paced study.

Our Program is easily achieved by staffers with a minimum of workplace downtime.   Our programme mentors spend time on-site with the employee to consolidate learning as well as mentoring throughout the programme.     Wesley touch base with supervisors to make sure learning correlates with workplace activities and identifies any gap training required.

Wesley have worked closely with industry bodies to formulate a solid entry level programme reinforcing necessary medical administrative training in key areas in addition to administrative units.

What makes our programme different?

The Wesley Trainee Programme for Medical Administrators is specifically written for industry.   Most Business Administration Qualifications on the market are generalist units.   Wesley’s programme has been written specifically for the medical sector incorporating real life scenarios, case histories, medical forms and more embedded in all of our units.

This means our programme is relevant and finely tuned to the needs of medical units, practices and hospitals in Australia.

Benefits of Training your staff

There are many benefits to upskilling your staff:

  • Consistent knowledge and skills in key areas (such as confidentiality, legislation,  medical records, medical triage for non-clinical staff, understanding Medicare Australia)
  • Staff retention – staff appreciate employers investing in their professional development
  • Payroll tax exemption and other financial incentives
  • Study pathways to further learning building to high expertise in teams and practices

Through our traineeship programs your employees will not only gain a nationally recognised qualification through a flexible and responsive mode of learning but also experience training that is meaningful to their workplace and relevant to their role.
