Ever wanted to make a real difference in the lives of the ageing and those living with a disability?

A career in Individual Support can mean working within a secure and flexible employment environment, and can be challenging yet incredibly rewarding. With an increasingly ageing population and the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), there is no better time to get involved and learn about how you can support people in your community.
You will be guided by our highly skilled and industry current trainers who will help you develop the personal and professional skills required to start your career with the community services sector.

This nationally recognised course includes a minimum of 120 hours of work placement, where you will practice and hone your skills and knowledge in the sector of your choosing.

It also provides invaluable opportunities to develop relationships with local organisations and facilities that will open doors to a variety of roles such as working as an aged Care Assistant or as a Disability Support Worker in facilities, private homes or in supported accommodation. You can specialise in aged care or disability, or increase your job opportunities and do both!

This course is being offered as a subsidised course to eligible students under the Smart and Skilled program. Applications for these subsidised places are limited so a funded place cannot be guaranteed.
