Our Partnerships

Vocational and Education Training Partners

We believe the best care is delivered in partnership with others. Our vocational and education training partners inform our training, development and customer experience in ways that enable our residents, communities and team members to thrive.

We choose to work with partners who share our values and our purpose and help us enhance the emotional and physical health and wellbeing of our residents.

We are very proud of our long-standing partnerships with tertiary education providers, allied health and specialist organisations, and will continue to develop partnerships with those who can help us to build our Opal HealthCare talent, deliver exceptional customer service and enrich the lives of our elders.

There are many professional development opportunities for your career in aged care through our vocational and education training programs and we offer a range of career pathways through our six schools of education at the Opal HeathCare Academy.
