We truly appreciate and value the relationship we’ve been able to build with the team at Akadia over the recent years. Working closely with the team we have been able to develop an onboarding package for all new team members which means immediately after their induction training they are able to safely and effectively support our clients in a variety of different scenarios. The efficiencies from this has helped us ensure our compliance with our registration requirements and most importantly ensure our team is delivering high-quality supports to our clients.
Further to this, being able to talk openly and honestly with like-minded passionate people who are interested in ensuring the services they provide build highly-capable disability support workers is invaluable.
(Director, Focused on Care)
We really appreciate the professionalism, responsiveness and authenticity of the training delivered by Akadia. Ann brings 50 years of industry experience and is an engaging and thoughtful facilitator. We find our staff not only consolidate their industry experience and learn current best practice but also apply their learnings immediately. Not only an excellent immediate return on investment but also great for staff retention.
(CEO, Magenta Community Services)
Akadia Training have been providing us with training since 2012. During that time they have assisted many of our trainees to complete both Certificate IIIs and IVs. They have also provided us with numerous in house training programs tailored to our requirements. Akadia have consistently provided us with excellent and flexible services. They have worked around our staffing needs and the rosters of our students. In addition they have provided us with constructive feedback not only on the performance of the trainees, but also on our practices and ways we might improve these.
(General Manager, The Brodribb Home)
The benefits of our continuing relationship with Akadia Training are numerous. Both the staff and the organisation benefit as training is delivered onsite at our facility. This ensures less time away from the workplace for training purposes. The trainees benefit from that wealth of knowledge of Akadia’s trainers, who have many years of industry experience and currency of knowledge. We have experienced the trainer’s commitment to go above and beyond their requirements to support trainees who need additional assistance. Akadia meets our needs for training by delivering consistently excellent service.
(Director of Care, Beauaraba Living, Pittsworth)
Akadia Trainers are the most knowledgeable, diligent, dedicated trainers and hold the highest expertise. I would 100% recommend them to anyone who was looking to study within the Aged Care, Home and Community Care or Disability sector. Akadia is passionate about the training they provide to their students and gave me the confidence and skills to perform my job to the best of my ability. Akadia allowed me to study, complete high school and work within aged care. Now 7 years later I have completed 3 certificates and attend many workshops with Akadia and will continue to do so.
