CHC33015 – Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)

In collaboration with Whiddon Maclean and BaptistCare Maranoa Alstonville

Face-to-Face Training/3 Days per Week/26 weeks 

North Coast community College is excited to be able to offer you in collaboration with Whiddon Maclean and BaptistCare Maranoa Alstonville a unique and hands on face-to-face learning experience.

During your course you will take part in onsite learning at each facility where you will have direct access to community members, workplace assessment and valuable experiences to enhance your learning.

With Australia’s ageing population continuing to grow, Aged Care is one of the few industries where job security and new opportunities are possible for decades to come. Are you interested in a career helping others? Qualified carers are in high demand. This course will provide you with entry level qualifications into this vital 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 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.
