3 month course nets graduates jobs in health care field

Posted by jtsmyth8 on March 5, 2008

Miss Rosyanti Abdullah was 49 when her company restructured last year and she lost her job. The O-level certificate holder spent 12 months looking for work, but found herself losing out to younger and better educated competition.

But after attending a three-month course that trains health-care assistants, she will start work this month at the Ling Kwang Home, a facility for the elderly.

‘I have been keen to get a job in health care for a long time, but didn’t have an opportunity until now,’ she said.

She is among 17 students who graduated on Wednesday from the second run of the health-care assistant course. The program trains those without prior experience to help take care of patients’ daily needs in community hospitals and nursing homes. (story)
