This qualification is targeted at workers in the community or residential setting who provide individualised support to the aged. Workers must use discretion and judgement and take responsibility for their own outputs. Aged care workers make a valuable contribution to the daily lives of thousands of older people across Australia. The course teaches factual, technical and procedural knowledge of the concepts and practices required to gain a Certificate III in Aged Care, and students enrolling into this qualification gain the knowledge and practical skills required for working within the aged care sector.
The qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow individualised plans, to provide person-centred support to people who may require assistance due to ageing, disability or some other reason. Australia’s aged care workforce is expected to grow to around 827,100 in 2050. This qualification is valuable to the growth of our caring community.
