HEALTH AND COMMUNITY SERVICES
The health and community services sector continues to experience rapid demand growth.
Employment opportunities in this rewarding industry are plentiful and a number of career pathways are available by completing this course.
In order to respond to the growing demand new qualifications have been developed which enable personal care assistants to work across a broader selection of employment opportunities without the need to undertake a series of qualifications.
What you need to know?
From January 2016 Certificate III in Individual Support (CHC33015) replaces three previous qualifications:
– Certificate III in Aged Care (CHC30212)
– Certificate III in Disability (CHC30408)
– Certificate III in Home and Community Care (CHC30312)
This makes perfect sense as a role as a personal care assistant is rarely limited to caring only for the elderly or only for the disabled. However, it also gives the flexibility to specialise within a particular area if you so choose – you will see some of our programs have been highlighted as a specialisation.
This qualification increases your value as an employee as you learn skills which can be applied across disciplines. You will be required to undertake a minimum of 120 hours work placement which we will source for you and which is the practical component to enable you to apply your classroom learnt skills. Our programs are delivered face to face by educators with many years’ experience within the sector.
This entry level qualification affords you many great opportunities including further qualifications, pathways into other areas within the sector or as the beginning of your journey into University to study nursing. We can help you explore all these options and develop a career pathway plan to help you on your way.
