Research Project for International students working in aged care

Do you work in aged care or child care?

Were you born outside Australia?

If so, we’d be interested in talking to you about your experiences!

Researchers at the University of New South Wales, the University of Sydney and

RMIT University are looking for volunteer participants to tell us about their experiences of working in the care sectors in Australia.

The study might be appropriate for you if:

• you were born outside Australia

• you are currently doing care work in aged care or child care

What would happen if I took part in the research project?

If you decide to take part you would be asked to participate in a face-to-face interview with a member of the research team in the next few months. The interview

would take about 45 minutes to 1 hour and would be at a location convenient for you.

We’d ask you about your pathway into the care workforce and a bit about your current experiences and preferences as a care worker. Your story will help us to understand the role of migrants working in care in Australia.

The information you provide to us will be confidential and you will not be named in any publications.

Will I be paid to take part in the research project?

You will receive a $30 voucher to say thank you for your time and for sharing your story with us.

Who do I contact if I want more information or want to take part in the study?
