This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualized plan to provide person-centered support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason. They must use discretion and judgement, and take responsibility for their own outputs. They are taught factual, technical and procedural knowledge of the concepts and practices required.
Students may undertake this course as an entry pathway into the disability care/support industry. Our course is directed towards developing multi-skilled workers for the broad range of services supporting aged people and the disabled in residential and community settings.
