Being a part of our Graduate Program is a unique and exciting opportunity. We invite graduates into our Program in January each year, which allows you to receive a tailored and highly supportive early career experience. Our clinical standards pathway has been specifically designed for New and Recent Graduates, intended to support you in your first year(s) of employment. Training you in all aspects of your chosen profession from how to write clinical reports to how to present ‘professionally’, the program offers a structured ‘road map’ of skill development along the journey towards clinical and professional competence.
At Kid Sense, we recognize that entering the professional workforce as a Graduate Therapist is an exciting but potentially daunting time. To help you along that journey, we have a strong culture of mentoring that sits alongside strong systems and procedures (both in terms of the Graduate Program as well as the ‘how to’ of your clinical delivery) so you know exactly what you need to do at every step of the journey and within each clinical task. This program is designed specifically to propel new or recent graduates with potential into therapists with competence and confidence who can provide the best quality care for their clients.
