Deliver a range of services and interventions to clients in the Community Services sector. Design and deliver programs that aim to enhance the well being of individuals and groups.

This qualification reflects the role of community service workers who design and deliver person-centred services to individuals and/or groups. Workers may provide support, advocacy or interventions to individual clients, groups or communities across a range of services.

At this level, workers may be autonomous with limited responsibility within established parameters and may be required to supervise and lead other workers in projects or teams. Work may take place in a range of community service, case work or case management contexts. Job titles may include; Welfare Support Worker; Case Worker; Health Education Officer; Community Services Worker; Early Intervention; Homeless Worker; Domestic Violence Worker.

This qualification is ideal as a broad orientation to the industry for individuals who are looking for work in this area. This qualification is also ideal for those who are already working in the industry and wish to formalize their skills or need to upgrade their qualification.

Graduates may choose to continue studies in the community services area.

Course Structure

The course includes a classroom component, off-campus study components and industry placement. Assessment is based on competency, which is the ability to demonstrate specific skills and will involve a combination of assessment methods. These assessments can include written assignments, discussion, interviews, workplace projects and practical demonstrations.

This qualification and the various delivery methods have been designed following consultations with industry, learners and other stakeholders.

Work placement is an integral part of the program you are learning. If you are not currently employed in this industry, you will be assisted to find a facility which will provide you with the appropriate environment for practical opportunities and assessment tasks. Placement is generally undertaken in a 3-4 week block at the end of the course, Monday to Friday during business hours (in some instances this may be negotiable on an individual basis).
