Courses in Community Services

Perhaps you enjoy helping people with conflict resolution or mental, lifestyle and emotional problems? If this is you, consider a career in counselling. Our online short course qualifications offer a practical and theoretical foundation for effective counselling. They provide you with training and experience that will enable you to seek work in either an agency or private practice. During these courses, you’ll learn empathy and rapport building as you develop the micro-skills that every counsellor needs to create a fruitful therapeutic relationship with their clients. For our most advanced online course in counselling, find out more here. 

Our aged care courses will teach you how to fulfil the critical functions of aged care as caregivers for seniors and elderly individuals in your community or in registered home care facilities. These include learning how to work effectively with them and participating in creating an empowering environment. Other critical skills and knowledge you will learn include the Australian legal and ethical frameworks you need to follow as a support carer, how to recognise healthy body systems, and what workplace health and safety practices you are required to comply with as a member of the aged care industry. 

Community Service worker

If you're looking for a career that will help you make a real difference in the lives of whole communities or individuals at risk, you may also consider working within the disability sector.  One in five people has a disability and as the sector continues to grow, employers are actively seeking qualified, compassionate workers. A career in the disability sector is both attainable and hugely fulfilling.
