Community Services Training

The Community Services branch of ATEC was launched in 2009 with the construction of our state of the art facilities at Port Adelaide and Noarlunga. In July 2015 the Noarlunga operations was moved to our Lonsdale campus to optimise training facilities.

ATEC has a long established history as a quality training provider in South Australia and the market dictated that we expand our scope.  This is when we added the Aged Care and Disability sectors to our training package.

Training delivery in our state of the art facilities uses real life equipment that you would find in any normal nursing home or community house.  Students benefit greatly by learning hands-on highly valued employability skills using our modern up to date equipment.

ATEC Community Services delivers training that is underpinned by evidence based personal care and the values of the Person Centred Care, inclusion, maintaining independence, valuing the elderly's opinions and experience and positive healthy ageing and ageing in place.

ATEC over the years have developed strong industry engagement and have become a provider of choice for many aged and disability sector employers. Students can connect with these employers through industry sessions held during the training course.  ATEC are proud of the achievements of our graduates with many gaining employment direct from their vocational work placement. ATEC consistently receive exceptional feedback on the level of skill and knowledge our students demonstrate in the workplace.
