The participants for the CHC33015 - Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) may be already working in a supporting or community role, or may be new to this field of work.
Participants who enter this course are from diverse backgrounds with a distinct interest and a willingness to support others in achieving positive personal outcomes through fulfilling helping capacity roles.
Participants will require a good level of physical fitness to perform all the requirements of a Care Worker. This can include all aspects of manual handling, lifting, bending, stretching and physical transfer of clients.
This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason.
Work involves using discretion and judgement in relation to individual support as well as taking responsibility for own outputs. Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support.
At this level, work takes place under the direction of others and supervision may be direct or indirect. Work may take place in a range of community services organisations.
To ensure participants are able to seamlessly access our online learning platform and video content, they will require access to a modern computer with high-speed internet.
