QUALITY, INNOVATION & LEARNING
QVCare goes the extra mile to provide quality care and services through our continuous quality improvement approach. We are a fully accredited Facility.
Employer of Choice
We are an Employer of Choice, recognised by the judges for our ‘exemplary change management practices’ as we respond to the Government’s significant reform agenda and introduce new information technology to grow productivity and staff engagement.
Registered Training Organisation
QVCare has been an active RTO in the past (since 2002) offering on-the-job traineeships to develop highly competent Extended Care Assistants. More recently QVCare has continued to host 12 Trainee Extended Care staff per year.
Many staff at QVCare have progressed from being Trainee ECA’s through to Registered Nursing and beyond. A current Senior member of the Registered Nursing Team commenced with the organisation as a Trainee ECA.
QVCare will continue to use the on-the-job CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support Traineeship program to ‘Grow Our Own’ Extended Care Assistants.
Next intake of trainees will be in April 2020. For more information please forward enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org .

Teaching Aged Care Facility
We are a Teaching Aged Care Facility, achieved through our unique partnership with the University of Tasmania and the Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre. We host and mentor students from six health disciplines to expand their knowledge and understanding about working in aged care. In turn, they bring a fresh perspective, valuable insights about current practice and opportunities to apply new ideas.
As part of The Queen Vic Way, we are committed to being a learning organisation and growing our own skilled staff. The Boutchard Dementia Education Bequest enables dementia education for frontline and support staff; we train and accredit staff in mandatory skills using a contemporary and flexible e-learning approach; we support and encourage staff to complete the Wicking Centre’s Understanding Dementia course; and invest in business and human resources education for administrative staff.
