Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability)
This course is a great entry-level qualification to provide you with the professional skills and tools to enter the disability-support industry. 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 disability. 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. This qualification reflects the role of workers in a range of community settings and clients’ homes, who provide training and support in a manner that empowers people with disabilities to achieve greater levels of independence, self-reliance, community participation and wellbeing. Workers promote a person-centred approach, work without direct supervision and may be required to supervise and/or coordinate a small team. The disability-care industry is growing at a rapid pace and according to the Government data, will require 50,000 new workers by 2022 which provides you an opportunity to develop a career in the industry and reach new heights and this course is the first definitive step towards that future.
