Provide Individual Support Skill Set

State ID: AE144

Your first step to a caring career.

Many individuals require support services to help them live an independent and fulfilling life — including people with physical or intellectual disability, older people, and vulnerable members of the community.

This is highly rewarding work, but employers look for people who are job ready with basic skills and knowledge for entry level roles in one-on-one or group support settings, or for administrative role in a care facility. With the Provide Individual Support skill set, that will be you!

While the mode of delivery may vary, the content and key learning outcomes of the course will remain the same.
