Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) CHC33015
This qualification 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.
As Australia’s population continues to age, more citizens will require support to help them in their daily life. Students are required to complete 120 hours of practical placement throughout their studies. Many graduates from Certificate III in Disability have gained employment at the facilities they undertook their work placement.
