Do you enjoy working with and assisting young people?

Working with youth is a rewarding and challenging career, where you can make a big difference in the lives of children and young people. Learn how to create a range of community-based programs designed to address the social, behavioural, health, welfare, developmental and protection needs of young people while working to legal and ethical requirements. You will undertake a supervised or simulated work placement where you will be able to apply the skills and knowledge you have learned.

    You will develop skills in:

    • developing and facilitating community education and development
    • communication and networking
    • advocating effectively
    • case work and report writing
    • understanding legal and ethical requirements
    • planning, developing and implementing youth programs and
    • implementing policies and guidelines.

    This qualification provides employment oppotunities in  community, government and youth sector agencies where you'll be responsible for implementing policies and guidelines of the employing organisation. Work is largely self-directed with fairly autonomous decision-making capacity under the indirect supervision of a manager.
