CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support
If you love working with people and making a real difference to people’s lives, then a career as a support worker is the perfect job for you! This nationally recognised qualification sets you up for a rewarding career in aged care, community home care, disability care or community-based organisations.
ATC Work Smart offers two specialisations in this course. You can choose from:
Ageing, Home and Community
This specialisation gives you the opportunity to work in a residential home, retirement home, respite centre or visit clients in their own home. A support worker provides personal, physical and emotional support to clients and assists with daily tasks such as showering, dressing, shopping, preparing food, outings and social activities.
Disability support workers promote independence and support their clients to become more self-reliant and build confidence in themselves. As a Disability Support Worker no two days are the same as you support individuals with a disability to achieve goals, have fun, and combat isolation and boredom.
