About the course

Our community services course is ideal for anyone looking to commence a rewarding career in community services. Offering a broad introduction to the community services sector, completing our course will enable you to develop the knowledge and skills to work with individuals, families, social groups or larger communities to support activities, information and referral for people in need of assistance in our communities. 

Currently, we are noticing an increase in employment opportunities in the community services sector as the community responds to supporting individuals through the changes bought about during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Community organisations are under resourced. This has resulted in recruitment drives and government funding allocations to organisations that support people with issues such as family issues, homelessness and family violence. 

As a qualified community services worker you’ll be ready to work in a range of service delivery roles including direct client work, community education or community development projects. You’ll understand how to provide support to people in need of assistance and how to link clients to appropriate services and government departments. 

You'll study subjects covering:

  • family violence prevention and intervention
  • drug and alcohol rehabilitation
  • legal and ethical compliance
  • diversity and communication
  • dual diagnosis
  • loss and grief
  • homelessness
  • visiting client residences
  • supporting people with fundamental financial literacy
