Reach out and help someone with an Upskilled qualification

You don’t need to be like Mother Theresa to be a conduit of care and compassion in the community services industry. Perhaps you’ve realised that helping other people or assisting with critical community tasks is the only thing that motivates you. Perhaps you’re looking for a career change and would like to do something that gives back.

Regardless, community services jobs are set to skyrocket over the coming decade as increasing numbers of baby boomers age. If you’re entertaining entering this rewarding but challenging field of work, Upskilled offers four community service courses online.

Our Diploma of Community Services covers 16 units and requires students to undertake a minimum of 100 hours of practical placement. It covers topics such as developing and implementing service programs and responding to stakeholder groups and crisis situations.

Other social work courses include our Diploma of Counselling, Diploma of Mental Health, and Diploma of Youth Work. The latter is particularly popular and requires students to undertake 21 units of competency, covering case management, communication and dealing with culturally diverse youth.
