There’s an increasing need for workers to support elderly people from their homes and aged-care facilities. The Australian Bureau of Statistics forecasts the population will soon come to a point where one in five Australians will be aged 65 or older.
This is putting substantial pressure on the aged care industry to supply the country with qualified care workers who can provide quality care and support to Australia’s aging population.
If you have an interest for helping the elderly, undertaking person-centred care or looking to make your first step into Australia’s growing aged-care sector the CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) course is the perfect opportunity for you.
Our Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) course will equip you with the knowledge to work in residential aged care facilities, community care, nursing homes, disability services, community-based organisations and even hospitals.
Our 6-month course offers both core and elective units related to the aged care industry, so you can work efficiently with individuals and groups of elderly. Upon successful completion of this program, it is expected you will be able to take up a position within a diverse range of aged care settings and facilities.
Potential career outcomes could include:
- Personal Care Worker
- Respite Worker
- Community Care Worker
- Assistant in Nursing
