Careers in health

Mayfield Education encourages applications and enrolments from students with diverse linguistic, cultural, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds, including those who identify as coming from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds.

Recognition of Prior Study and Learning Experience

Applicants may be entitled to have previous units of study recognised when undertaking new courses. When you enroll in a course with Mayfield Education you are able to apply for Credit Transfer (CT) and/or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)/Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) for units within a course. The provision of CT, RPL/RCC at the beginning of a course ensures that eligible students do not have to repeat the learning of skills, knowledge or attitudes already achieved elsewhere. CT and/or RPL/RCC are awarded against specific units or modules of the course, not a whole course. In some instances this may allow you to complete the course in a shorter time-frame at a reduced cost. It is important you consider CT and/or RPL/RCC as soon as possible.

Please go to Recognition of Prior Study and Learning page for more information

Student Tuition Assurance Scheme

Mayfield Education of Victoria will maintain a tuition assurance scheme to safeguard students in the event of it becoming insolvent and unable to return fees that have been paid in advance. The tuition assurance scheme will source similar training to allow the effected participants under this condition to complete their studies without further financial burden. However if the student cannot be placed, the tuition assurance will make refunds.

Police Checks

Some courses require clinical or work placements, and the Mayfield Education student may be required to provide a satisfactory police check prior to acceptance by the host agency.

Vaccination Requirements

Mayfield Education encourages students to review their own personal immunization status. As part of most of our courses, host health agencies and venues are organised for clinical and work placement experience. In order to protect you from potential infections, these agencies require students to have proof of protection against the following:

  • Measles/Mumps/Rubella
  • Chicken Pox (Varicella)
  • Tetanus
  • The vaccination for TB (tuberculosis)
  • Annual Influenza Vaccination
  • Pertussis (Whooping Cough)
  • Hepatitis A & B

If students do not have an accurate written record of their vaccination history or are unsure as to the level of immunization coverage that they currently have, they are encouraged to consult their General Practitioner who may order a blood test to check Antibody levels in each case. A full vaccination program may not be necessary.
