Work placement information

Work placement provides you with an opportunity to learn and be assessed in a hands-on, real-life industry environment. Learning in the classroom is important, and you will engage in lots of classroom discussion, practice and be involved in demonstrations and simulations before you are ready for your work placement – but gaining practical experience during your work placement hours provides you with the opportunity to put your new-found knowledge into practice and provides you with an appropriate environment to be assessed in. It also provides you with opportunities to observe qualified and experienced community services workers and allows you to learn while under the close supervision and guidance of a workplace supervisor and mentor.

You will not be paid for your work placement as it forms part of your training and assessment for this qualification.


You are always expected to comply with all of your work placement’s policies and procedures for their staff members and follow your supervisor’s instructions. You will receive the required information about working hours, dress requirements and specific guidelines from your work placement before you begin and will sign a work placement agreement prior to starting. If you’re unsure of anything then speak to your trainer/assessor and ask questions when the placement arrangements are being made. You may undertake more than one placement at a different facility – this will all be arranged with your trainer/assessor and made clear to you during this time.

Your work placement supervisor will arrange an induction for you where the expectations will be outlined and the limitations of what you are able to do while you are at your work placement.

How have you recognised and respected the older person’s social, cultural and spiritual needs?All aging people, regardless of their faith, beliefs, or religion, have spiritual needs. Unmet prayers can show up in a variety of situations, such as persistent dissatisfaction, anxiety, sadness, and helplessness. The steps taken are given below: Meet and identify the spiritual needsEnsure that spiritual care is taken according to the Ethical work frame.
How did you encourage a shared approach to health and ageing to empower the person to take responsibility for health outcomes?    I encourage by saying the importance of health and whom it helps in living the good life. If any health problem is seen, then he/ she should say to take the caring staff.

What are social and physical enablers that assist this person to have better health outcomes and quality of life?The welcoming environment and different activities in the community like the cultural program, and caring environment will help in the improvement my quality of life.
What are the social and physical disablers that impact on their quality of life and healthy ageing outcomes?Hearing loss, cataracts, and refractive errors are common conditions in older people, and the younger generation does not give much thought to items that can lower one’s quality of life.

ow did you ensure the person’s rights were Halways upheld?Their human rights and their contribution to society. The world has not been quick to respond: a lack of political will and the prioritization of the special rights of other disadvantaged groups have often been at the expense of the case for older people. There are different organizations that are taking care of their rights.
  PencilActivitiesPencil         What happened? Provide detailed information.
How did you make sure the person is aware of how to make a complaint if they want to and their right to do so?They should complain to the police or to different human rights organizations.
How did you prepare to work with this person and how did you ensure you understood the policies and procedures of your work placement?When we connect emotionally, positive, and respectful relationships grow. These connections happen because of our regular contacts and sharing with one another. and talking about the many governments and commonwealth policies that are in place.
How did you avoid imposing your own values and opinions on this person?First, I will understand their personal interest and do activities according to their interests. Not my interest.
Explain how you used a person-centred approach and built trust when carrying out activities with the person.I’ve exploited people to make decisions. A person-led approach puts the person’s needs first and supports them in taking charge of their own treatment. The individual and their abilities are highlighted rather than a person’s illness or impairment.
What strategies did you use to maximise opportunities for participation in healthy ageing lifestyle practices?Some of the strategies I will use for maximizing opportunities are given below: Doing daily exerciseTaking good foods onlyRegular health check-up
Pencil         ActivitiesPencil         What happened? Provide detailed information.
Which mobility aids or assistive devices did you use with the person to encourage independence and individual strength?The kind of mobility aid I provide will depend on the injury or mobility problem. that comprise     1.   Canes: Canes are like crutches in that they aid the transfer of weight from the legs to the upper body and support the body’s weight. They put more strain on the hands and wrists than crutches do, but they also take less weight off the lower body.
Which situations of risk did you discuss with the person?The risk that an old person can face is while they are alone in the home and there is no one to take care. Some problems are seen in this case I have suggested calling first or call to the person living in next door.
How did you practice duty of care and dignity or risk?A duty of care is inherent in the dignity of risk. That is because improving a customers’ ability to protect themselves reduces their susceptibility, which is the main goal of safeguarding. A power disparity is what makes something vulnerable.
