Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing, Disability)


Get a career in caring

This course is designed for workers in the community and/or residential setting who provide one-on-one support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or any other reason. They are required to follow a personalised care plan, and must use their discretion and judgement in delivering appropriate care as required.

Such workers can work primarily in residential facilities and disability support centres under direct or regular supervision within clearly defined organisation guidelines and service plans. They are required to carry out activities to maintain personal care and/or other activities of living for people in an aged care or disability support setting.

There is tremendous demand for aged care and disabled care workers in Australia and other countries. By the end of this decade, it is estimated that there will be a shortage of over one lakh aged care workers in Australia, if not more, and hence this is a sector where many new job opportunities will be opening up.
