Reading, Reporting, Recording

For direct care workers in a home or community setting

Duration: 10 mins 45 secs

This video is based on realistic work situations and demonstrates the relevance and importance of ‘reading, reporting and recording’ for direct care workers who work in a client’s home or community setting. The relationship between what is written down and the work situations aged and disability support workers may experience is clearly demonstrated.

It can be used in the induction and orientation of new staff, as refresher training and for learners undertaking accredited courses in the Community Services Training Package.

The resource also comes with a Trainer Guide and support materials that can be customised for different working and training situations.

Project developed by Fran Haarsma Productions and Silver Circle Training Institute. Funded under the Workplace English Language and Literacy (WELL) Program by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.

“The workplace examples in the DVD gave students a very clear understanding of the relevant forms and information required for their work role and workplace requirements”.
