Personal satisfaction and success for young people with disability
Did you know that less than half of all Australians with disability are engaged in meaningful paid employment?
To help change this, Holmesglen and the Royal Children’s Hospital are introducing an innovative workplace learning program.
Based on internationally proven models, our program is designed to help young people with disability build the skills they need to achieve sustainable employment. With the support of industry experts, tutors and mentors, they can now spend more time learning in the workplace than the classroom.
Through the Holmesglen Foundation, you can help give more Australians with disability the opportunity to succeed in their careers and make their contribution to society.
Shaping the future of Australia’s water and plumbing industry
The South East Water Project is an applied research project with significant implications for Australia’s future.
A collaboration between Holmesglen and South East Water, this exciting initiative involves testing new filtering and heating systems for harvested water in domestic settings.
Involving the build of a two-storey model home facility at our Chadstone campus, our findings will be applied to new housing developments in Melbourne’s south east.
The project has significant implications for the plumbing and water industry – with more potential benefits for town planning, building surveying, building design and architecture.
With your support, the Centre for Applied Research and Innovation can continue its work with industry, government and communities across a range of research projects and new product trials.
Promoting safe and quality healthcare
Widely recognised as a leading training facility, the Holmesglen Simulation Centre provides an optimum learning environment for students entering the healthcare and community sectors.
Harnessing technology, innovation and principles in best practice healthcare, the centre houses simulation facilities and specialist teaching spaces that replicate real-world environments.
Learners acquire skills in a range of simulated contexts including home and allied health, complex emergency, critical care, perioperative and clinical ward.
By promoting safe, quality healthcare, Holmesglen is raising the bar on Australia’s healthcare system.
Thanks to your partnership, Holmesglen can establish more academic and training centres and leverage the success of our Simulation Centre model across the Institute.
