CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support

Aged Care/HACC or Disability specialist streams

Thanks to the Queensland Government through its Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative.

Why only these qualifications?

Social Assistance Work Skills offers tailored assistance to Queenslanders to gain nationally recognised skills and vocational qualifications in Aged Care, Home and Community Care or Disability Work.  The program focuses on developing an individual’s skills, supporting them to begin a learning pathway to gain a certificate III qualification.

The qualifications are designed to equip students with the skills needed to work in the aged care, home and community care and disability sectors.  With a strong practical focus, you will gain the skills required to become a disability support worker, care assistant, residential care officer, in-home respite care worker, community house worker or an accommodation support worker.

The call for care workers is rising fast. A big future awaits people with empathy and an understanding of what it takes to maintain individual’s well-being and independence.

This program is suitable for those who have an interest in social support and assistance in aged care and disability sectors.
