Auckland’s ABI rehabilitation celebrated a big milestone with their first Brain Injury Support (Level 4) graduation.
ABI provide rehabilitative support for people who have been through a brain injury or stroke. They are committed to developing their staff and providing quality support, and have worked closely with Careerforce over the past two years to develop and pilot this training in their workplace.
The new qualification recognises and captures the skills brain injury support workers need, and it helps to professionalise their crucial role.
Founding director and manager of ABI Max Cavit said it was a big day for graduates, and spoke about his passion for enabling the people they support to make the most out of life.
This kind of training is only possible with the support and encouragement of your workplace and ABI have gone way above and beyond. ABI have helped to enable other workplaces and brain injury support workers to achieve this qualification, which is a wonderful step.
