Help us develop industry leaders and innovators to support some of the most vulnerable people in our communities
About Whiddon’s Scholarship Program
At Whiddon, we invest a great deal in finding and developing carers, nurses, cooks and many others who have the values and skills to provide the right experience for our residents and clients. It’s a special person who can really listen and provide care and support that truly makes a difference to older people’s lives. Working in aged care is not a job, it’s a calling.
Each year, with the generous support of our corporate partners and organisations, Whiddon’s Scholarship Program enables employees to develop their professional skills through funded tertiary studies in areas such as health and nursing, diversional therapy, catering, human resources and management.
Many courses involve practical work experience and the scholarship ensures that Whiddon employees who are located in regional, rural and remote locations have equal access to opportunities for education and career development.
Health Services Management Scholarship
My Scholarship allows me to undertake a Graduate Certificate in Health Services Management. The course focuses on Health and Aged Care Service Development and Policies. I will be studying through Charles Sturt University in Bathurst.
Without this scholarship, I would not have been able to undertake further education. This will allow me to formally build on the years of experience I have working in this role and develop my leadership and managerial skills. I strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for our residents, staff and facility.
