Course Overview

When it comes to aged care and disability, every patient has their own set of challenges and strengths and the aged care industry needs people who can cater to these individual needs.

That’s where the Certificate III in Individual Support comes in, because administering high levels of care means taking the time to individually plan and follow through with each patient.

You’ll learn to master a range of skills in factual, technical and procedural knowledge as you learn what’s required to provide person-centred support to the best of your abilities.

Taught both on-campus and online for six months, you’ll be guided by our expert teachers to ensure you’re learning in the best possible way while increasing your confidence when it comes to the workplace.

And when you finish this course, there are so many doors open to you when it comes to employment. You might find yourself working in aged care facilities, home & community care environments or hospice facilities, just to name a few!

You might even like to take your studies further by completing a Certificate IV in Ageing Support, a Certificate IV in Allied Health, a Certificate IV Leisure and Health or a Diploma of Nursing.

All these courses will give you specialised skills and enhance your employment opportunities for the future. But don’t worry, we’ll be here to help you through the decision-making process if and when the time comes!

A Certificate III in Individual Support is the perfect platform to help those in need, taking you into the community and residential settings and helping you achieve your career goals. Come and study with us today.

ATTENTION: As much as we’d love to offer more, we can only offer one Free TAFE course per person. If you’ve already enrolled and commenced, or enrolled but didn’t complete a Free TAFE course at any Victorian TAFE in the past you will NOT be eligible for another and will need to pay tuition and materials fees when you enrol. Reach out to us if you think this is you.
