Qualify for Both Aged Care and Disability Support
Graduates of this course will be qualified to work in both disability support and aged care. Both forms of care are in high demand, with Australia's aging population and the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) leading to a more concerted national approach to disability support. Having completed this course, students can continue to study further units and complete a Certificate IV or Diploma in either disability support or aged care while already working in either area.
The 'Certificate III in Individual Support' course is designed for workers in the community and/or residential setting who provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason. They follow a personalised care plan, and use their discretion and judgement in delivering appropriate care as required.
Workers can work primarily in residential facilities and disability support centres under direct or regular supervision within clearly defined organisation guidelines and service plans. They carry out activities to maintain personal care and/or other activities of living for people in an aged care or disability support setting. They are expected to report directly to a supervisor and are not responsible for other workers.
