Are you looking to employ graduates who are trained in health and frail care through an accredited Health and Welfare SETA (HWSETA) Programme? If this is the case, then you can contact Bergzicht Training and Development’s Placement Bureau Officer, Ms Sinazo Gosani, at or 021 883 3525 for a copy of the CV of the student/s you are interested in employing and to arrange an interview with the student/s at our offices in Stellenbosch.

You can also find out more about the 13 students who recently completed our HWSETA-accredited Health and Frail Care Programme by clicking here. Our 15-week, full-time programme equips our students to become either a nurse’s assistant or a frail care assistant, and provide care to a sick or frail patient, an elderly person, or a sick baby or child. During the course of the programme, students cover modules such as ethical care at health care centres and in private homes, basic anatomy, how to assist immobile patients, and baby and child care. The programme consists of five weeks of theoretical and practical training in a classroom setting followed by a 10-week work-integrated learning opportunity offered at one of 26 different care institutions in the Western Cape.
