Individual Support (Aged Care & Disability)

Aged Care and Disability courses available in Byron Bay and Mullumbimby

Australia’s population is ageing and the North Coast of NSW is a popular place for retirement. If you would like to work in the Aged Care or Disability Care Industry, a Nationally Recognised Qualification is required to enter this field of work. These courses will give you the skills and knowledge to work as a Care Assistant, Nursing Assistant or Home Care Assistant in an Aged Care Facility or within the Community, in what can be a rewarding and fulfilling career.

Come and learn Individual Support with us at Byron Community College. See what’s on offer at our Mullumbimby and Byron Bay campuses below.

A student experience: Mac Maderski

"The course not only offers necessary skills and knowledge needed to work in the industry but also provides personal development at a socio-multicultural level. It improves our understanding of what it is to care for our elderly and people with disabilities, teaches humility, compassion and patience which also reflects on the personal, family and community well-being, it is a skill set worth learning regardless of our circumstances or background.

I have to admit that this course kind of landed in my lap without any pre-planning or previous interest in that field, but I can honestly say without a shadow of regret that I’m glad it did, if not for myself than for others, and would recommend it to anyone looking to become a carer or further improve their personal development.

The professional, flexible and friendly approach by the Byron College staff and an amazing group of students made it a pleasant and memorable experience. I never expected such a high standard of education and support from a small Community College. Thank You"
