Accredited Training Scholarship 2019

Dear Victorian Foster and Statutory Kinship carers,

We are excited to announce that expressions of interest are now open for the Carer KaFÉ Accredited Training Scholarship!

The scholarship will help recipients undertake an accredited unit of study that is relevant to the caring role at a University or Registered Training Organisation in the first semester of 2019. You can take a single unit, or put it towards a recognised certificate, diploma or even a degree!

Accredited training differs from the free non-accredited training sessions already provided by Carer KaFÉ as it incurrs a cost, and students are required to complete formal assessment. Previous scholarship recipients found online training to be the most suitable form of delivery, but you are very welcome to choose face-to-face options.

Not sure what you want to study? Please see the expression of interest form for a number of recommended units. You are also very welcome to research options in your local area for us to consider. Check out the recommended the units to understand what will be considered relevant to the carer role.

Carer KaFÉ is seeking expressions of interest from Victorian statutory kinship and foster carers by Friday 30 November 2018. Please fill out the expression of interest form and return it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Having trouble completing the form? Call Carer KaFE on (03) 9416 4292. We hope to inform all applicants of the results by December 2019.
