Workplace based learning gives you the opportunity to apply your knowledge on the job and helps you to understand your career options.
Placement gives the opportunity for on the job training and supports to be given to our students in a real workplace environment. Most of our courses require you to complete a number of hours in a workplace-based setting and carry out an on-the-job performance assessment. For example, some of our Certificate III and IV qualifications include (minimum) 120 hours of work placement, during which you are assessed on your practical ability.
Our parent company, Amana Living offers residential care, housing, respite care, transition care and dementia services, across the Perth metro, Australind, Kalgoorlie and Albany.

This enables Amana Living Training Institute (ALTI) the ability to offer work placements, traineeships and possible employment opportunities for our students. It is an assurance that no other Registered Training Organisation in Western Australia can provide.
As well as offering work placements within Amana Living, ALTI has a number of partner organisations who may be suitable for your workplace placement.
