Traineeships at Wellways

At Wellways, our traineeships are designed to prepare people completing formal mental health studies with the skills, capabilities and knowledge they need to enjoy a rewarding career in the mental health sector. Wellways currently offers two traineeship options funded by the Victorian Government: The Earn and Learn program and the Lived Experience Peer Cadet Program.

Both traineeships offer students a paid role in a Wellways mental health program while studying Certificate IV Mental Health or Certificate IV Mental Health Peer Work.

The Earn and Learn Traineeship Program

Wellways is delivering the Earn and Learn Traineeship to people studying Diploma or Certificate IV in Mental Health as part of the Victorian Government’s initiative to help strengthen the state’s mental health workforce.

Wellways is a leading provider of the Earn and Learn Traineeship Program.

Successful trainees will support a wide variety of people experiencing mental health issues through Wellways mental health programs in metro and regional areas.

The Lived Experience Peer Cadet Program

The Lived Experience Peer Cadet Program offers people studying Certificate IV in Mental Health Peer Work who have lived or living experience of mental health issues the opportunity to work in part-time paid employment in community mental health.
