Do you have the empathy, compassion and commitment to work with elderly people? Do you have a passion for helping people? Would you like a long lasting career in one of the fastest growing industries?
The Brotherhood of St Laurence Individual Support qualification will help you develop the skills required to manage and take care of elderly clients through theoretical and practical learning. It is the standard entry qualification for workers in this sector and will introduce you to all aspects of a carer's role including personal care, well-being and assistance with daily activities.
The Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) is a nationally recognised qualification and is the first step in gaining the skills to work in a residential aged care facility or as a home and community care worker.
The knowledge you gain in the classroom is complemented by 200 hours of practical workplace training in an aged care environment. Your work placement is a great opportunity for you to gain real life experience in the field and be introduced to a potential employer. The Brotherhood has many partner organisations as well as internal opportunities in which to complete the work placement.
Upon completion of your training in Aged Care you will be able to:
- provide support to people living with dementia
- work effectively in the community sector
- work effectively with older people
- provide support to meet personal care needs, such as bathing or dressing.
