A nationally recognised qualification for those persons seeking a leadership or supervisory role in the aged care sector.
This qualification reflects the role of support workers who complete specialised tasks and functions in aged services; either in residential, home or community-based environments. Workers will take responsibility for their own outputs within defined organisation guidelines and maintain quality service delivery through the development, facilitation and review of individualised service planning and delivery. Workers may be required to demonstrate leadership and have limited responsibility for the organisation and the quantity and quality of outputs of others within limited parameters.
To achieve this qualification, the candidate must have completed at least 120 hours of work as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency.
This course is delivered via face-to-face fortnightly workshops over 6 months by our college’s highly skilled, professional, current, and industry-experienced trainer and assessors. Candidates will be required to undertake self-directed learning tasks, complete assessment, and research tasks between workshops.
