In a Tasmanian first, three students have been recognised for their achievements in a Certificate III in
Aged Care, in the lead up to their November graduation.
Brittany-Lee Grice, Jo-Ellen Fejgl and Louise Pullen, will be celebrated for excelling in a school-based
traineeship offered in partnership with Work & Training, Rosny College and Claremont College, at
Freemasons’ Homes of Southern Tasmania.
Freemasons’ Homes Manager-Human Resources Stephanie Seinor said bringing two diverse generations
together through the innovative School-Based Traineeship program had achieved award winning results.
“One of our graduating students, Brittany-Lee Grice won the Tasmanian School-Based Trainee of the
Year, and one of our other graduates Jo-Ellen Fejgl was named a finalist,” Ms Seinor said.
“Aged care isn’t a sector young people automatically think of when looking for employment but this
traineeship demonstrates the success that can come from young people working with older generations.
“With Tasmania predicted to have the oldest population in Australia by 2019, encouraging passionate
young Tasmanians to consider a career in aged care is vital.”
