Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability)
This disability support traineeship will provide you with the skills and knowledge to be effective in a disability care worker role in the community and/or within a residential setting.
You will learn to use a person-centred approach to assist with personal care by following individualised plans to look after people with a disability.
By promoting healthy lifestyles and social inclusion, and supporting their emotional wellbeing, you will discover how to empower and facilitate the independence of disabled people.
Many of the learning activities and tasks will encourage learners to reflect on their current work and practices and benefit by the employer by applying these new skills immediately in your organisation.
Course Duration and Delivery
The 12 month program is delivered in shorter, more manageable terms of learning. This allows participants to focus on specific sections of the program at one time.
These terms also provide the perfect ‘check point’ over the duration of the program to monitor and support participant progress.
Each term, the participant enjoys an innovative 360 degree learning experience.
After a program orientation session, participants engage in group workshops and tutorials, workplace training activities, have access to on-demand support as required and concludes with a face to face workplace visit by the trainer to recap the term of learning and observe the participant’s progress.
