Training Academy Drake Medox
Training is one of the most important means of learning and skill development in a health professional’s life and at Drake Medox we place great value on our staff who deliver our services.
We are very excited to be commencing our second year of the Drake Medox Training Academy. We appreciate all the support and feedback given along the way and have taken on your suggestions to incorporate new topics to this season.
This year, we will continue to include our original topics, as well as deliver several new ones, with a bonus guest speaker to provide an educational opportunity you won’t want to miss!
We are committed to providing our staff with as much learning opportunities as possible and contribute to the professional development of your careers.
2023 Drake Medox Training Academy topics below:
The courses are delivered virtually with some components requiring a practical or short theory assessment. Our teams are encouraged to attend one session each quarter and the session dates and times are shared 3 months in advance, so our team has plenty of time to schedule their training.
The great news is that the Medox Training Academy is paid on-the-job training. This means all of our disability support workers and clinical nursing teams are paid when they attend a session.

What Do Our Candidates Say?
I have worked with Drake Medox Canberra as a disability support worker for roughly over 6 months now. Working at Drake is a relaxed environment and you are supported by the management 24/7 if you need help, have any questions or queries. The management/staff are approachable and very supportive. They have flexible working hours which works out great for me as a mum who has to juggle both work and family! They also try and match me with clients that they know I will get on well with. The weekly pay is a bonus. I would highly recommend working for Drake Medox!
Chiedza - Candidate
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Drake Medox. The office staff have been fabulous to deal with. I haven't felt just like a number, and I feel that they have my client’s best interests at heart. It makes me want to always do the absolute best I can, and I have felt appreciated for my efforts. I have enjoyed sharing good "stories" with staff and felt they too had pleasure in hearing of a client’s good progress. I always feel listened to if I have any concerns, and this encourages staff greatly. I feel that overall, the "team" is a good one and have referred others because it is so good!
Heather - Candidate

So far, I am happy working with Drake Medox, and am learning as I go along. The staff are all nice and willing to teach others. They are very knowledgeable and good at their jobs. Drake also provide paid training, which I attend when possible.

As a returning staff member to Drake Medox Perth, this second time round joining is as good as the first time. A company that prioritises its staff and provides consistent communication!
The team at Drake are very friendly and easy to work with. Working with Deputy as the rostering system has been a breath of fresh air for its simplicity and ease of use. The training offered is impressive and I look forward to making the most of it.
Sarah - Candidate
I've been employed by Drake Medox for 14 years. I'm happy in my role and the support from Drake Medox has been good.
I have worked at Drake Medox for over a year. I was offered a good salary scale from the onset, provided with many training opportunities, and can easily voice my concerns and give feedback. I have also been provided with the opportunity to work independently with my clients, using my own knowledge and skills. Drake Medox also provides the opportunity to expand my knowledge within Australia by supporting clients with complex needs. My availability for shifts is taken into consideration, provision is made for time to meet my study requirements at university. I am always granted leave for illness and vacation, and I am always treated fairly.
Melanie - Candidate
Drake is a great place to work. Drake has a range of diverse clients which means you will always have a good shift and bring something to the team. There are always opportunities for training and development in the homes that you work in. I have been very fortunate to create some fantastic relationships in the years that I have been working for Drake.
Kristy - Candidate
I have been working consistently for Drake since February 2020 with a range of clients, and I have found that it has improved a good deal in terms of management and communication. My experience has been very positive, and I really enjoy the time with my clients and all the support that the office provides.
When first hearing about Drake Medox, my interest was piqued: client meetings before taking clients on, nurses on site for staff to contact and do care plans appropriate for individual clients. I feel that both of these are very important for clients and staff. Once joining Drake, the care and communication around each client showed that Drake Medox are in business for the right reasons. I would have no hesitation recommending them to prospective clients or staff.
Tori - Candidate
I have been with Drake Medox Perth for nearly 3 months. I have found the Perth office staff to be extremely welcoming and professional. It is great to work for a company where employees are treated well.
Natasha - Candidate
I absolutely love working for Drake. The office staff are flexible and understanding. My number one reason is my client and being able to fulfill goals and enrich their lives! I find this job so rewarding! If I ever need to advocate for my client, the office staff are quick to action these.
