Certificate III Individual Support

(Ageing or Disability)

About the course

The CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support has been designed specifically for students who are wishing to gain employment in the Support Services, providing support to individuals with living with the results of Ageing and/or Disabilities.

The Certificate III in individual support reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason. Work involves using discretion and judgement in relation to individual support as well as taking responsibility for own outputs. Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support
