About the course

Would you like to help people with a disability make positive changes to their lives? In our disability course you’ll develop the skills and knowledge to advocate for and empower people with a disability, enhancing their ability to achieve greater levels of independence, self-reliance and community participation.

In our disability course you’ll learn from experienced trainers on how to address the social, behavioural, health, welfare, developmental and protection needs of people with disabilities and take part in extensive industry work placement.

You’ll study how to:

  • support practices for direct client care
  • provide person centred services
  • implement strategies for people with complex needs
  • increase community participation
  • enhance communication
  • apply legal and ethical guidelines
  • effectively network

Our disability course is a nationally recognised qualification, with graduates highly sought out by employers. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) promotes a wide range of opportunities for assisting people with disability and there is an increased demand for trained disability support workers following the 2017 roll out of the NDIS in Victoria.

Note: from 2024 to enrol in this qualification candidates will have to competed the prerequisite course: CHC33021 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing and Disability)
