New Graduate Program

 What is the HIH Group Graduate program?

HIH Group’s New Graduate Training program has been designed to support graduate talent kick-start successful careers in the NDIS, occupational therapy and allied health space. The program offers an introduction for recent graduates who might not have a lot of experience, but who are keen to learn from industry-leading professionals.


How does it work?

Over an intensive six-month period, the program provides multimodal learning in collaboration with industry experts, covering core components including assessment and report writing skills, clinical and legislative knowledge as well as communication, inter-disciplinary teamwork, managing complex needs and time management.


What is involved?

Observing different working styles and exposure to a range of critical skills is a key part of our graduate program, which helps graduates develop their own unique approach. We provide theoretical manuals and workbooks to assist in the learning process and demonstrate the understanding of each module, which provides a solid foundation and covers core components of the role of our allied health practitioners:

·         occupational therapist,

·         mental health social worker,

·         behaviour support practitioner,

·         play therapists,

·         exercise physiologists and

·         rehabilitation counsellor.

Most importantly, the graduate position is adaptable to each new starter, depending on their pace of learning and experience.


What happens after the initial phase?

There is an ongoing support program in the following six months, which offers mentorship from key leaders and senior consultants within HIH Group, who have demonstrated experience in their specific fields.


After the 12-month mark, graduates move into our Grow, Connect, Succeed Program, tailored to each individual and allows each graduate to launch their roles, and develop their career trajectory.

This element of the program is a self-directed career development and progression planning stage, which offers support from industry experts to assist you in working towards your goals. With some experience under your belt, HIH Group also provides a range of long-term opportunities within the business, whether that is specialising in an area on one of our key contracts or working with a specific set of clients.


Opportunities for growth at every step!

The co-facilitated program offers meaningful connections with peers, as well as with other graduates across Victoria, and the program is consistently evolving, welcoming the ideas of new graduates to tackle problems – at HIH Group, we believe that learning is a shared responsibility and a shared journey.


Opportunity is abundant in the program for teamwork, evidence-based assessment, and innovative intervention services. Experience quality service training, and responsive relationships.
