IHNA International (India) campus is located in Kochi, formerly known as Cochin, city and major port on the Malabar Coast of the Arabian Sea, west-central Kerala state, southwestern India.
The proximity to serene places and ambience of a cosmopolitan city are two of the major advantages of settling down in Kochi. Living in Kochi has just gotten a lot better with the coming of the Metro.
Interestingly, it is Kerala that has plenty of good places to live when surveyed on various counts like infrastructure, growth of industries, opportunity of further growth, potential for further education and so on.
The booming port city of Kochi created thousands of jobs for new graduates, thanks to the demand in the IT sector. Some of the best places to live in Kochi are Edapally, Pachalam, Thripunithura, Mamangalam, Ponekkara, Kakkanad and Fort Kochi. The city is also rife with entertainment areas that promote art and culture and with excellent parks like Changampuzha Park, Subhash Park, Cherai beach, Fort Kochi and Vypeen Island.

How to attract, recruit and maintain a dedicated skilled and loyal workforce in the health sector (Aged Care)
This seminar is based on research from a recent royal commission report into the aged care sector and a workforce strategy that followed. The strategy outlined a number of skill gaps across the aged care sector, including a significant lack of management & leadership knowledge and skills. This was identified across all levels of staff, including management and supervisors. Based on the workforce strategy, I have put together an educational seminar. The seminar includes a lot of practical ideas and ‘How To’ methods. The purpose of the seminar is to develop and build knowledge and skills of people working across the aged care sector.
