COMMUNITY SERVICES

The community services sector continues to be one of Australia’s largest and fastest growing employers. Occupations such as early childhood educators, aged care workers and disability support workers have experienced strong growth and this growth is expected to increase to meet community service demands and changes to service delivery models within these sectors. Our Certificate III to Diploma courses in these occupational fields incorporate a work placement component ensuring the student has the skills, knowledge and competencies required for immediate employment and/or entry into pathway courses.
