At Central Regional TAFE, we offer Certificate qualifications to help students like you develop the best foundation to start a career in providing high-quality disability services. With a disability services course, you’ll learn basic industry skills and knowledge, and develop the right skills to provide holistic support services to clients, report and write documentation, follow safe work practices, recognise and respond to life-threatening emergencies, and communicate with diverse groups of people.
And if you’re already in the disability service sector, and want to upskill, we’ve got a program for you too. A Certificate IV in Disability trains you to work as a disability support worker within a community organisation, or in a client’s home. You’ll be trained on how to help people with intellectual or physical disability, and using your knowledge, you can help them on their journey to become more self-reliant and independent.
Completing this qualification also opens up opportunities for managerial or supervisory positions, and enables you to take on more responsibility in a team setting. You’ll find that you’ll have more opportunities to work with other health professionals and service agencies in order to work towards the best outcomes for your clients.
