This qualification reflects the role of support workers who complete specialised tasks and functions in aged services; either in residential, home or community-based environments.
Workers will take responsibility for their own outputs within defined organisation guidelines and maintain quality service through the development, facilitation and review of individualised service planning and delivery. Workers may be required to demonstrate leadership and have limited responsibility for the organization and the quantity and quality of outputs of others within limited parameters.
There are no entry requirements for this qualification. However, it is expected that students will have appropriate language, literacy and numeracy skills to complete the training and assessment requirements. All students must be willing to participate in mandatory workplace practice of a minimum of 120 hours. Students will seek their own work placements and clear guidance will be provided.
