There are so many different paths your career can take when you complete community services courses, as the roles you’ll find in the sector are as diverse as the people you serve. The job of supporting society’s most vulnerable people is a complex one, so it stands to reason that the work reflects this fact.
In order to illustrate just how diverse the available roles are for anyone using online learning to get into the profession, we’re now going to look at a few of the possibilities. By reading to the end, you’ll get a flavour for the sheer scope of the positions open to you.
So, without further delay, let’s get started...
Housing Support Worker
As is taught in community services courses, one of the basic necessities for people is housing, with a housing support worker assisting people to find and secure suitable properties for their needs. An annual salary in the region of $75K is as financially rewarding as it is from a professional point of view.
Women & Children Case Worker
A big problem that most societies have is domestic violence, and as a women and children caseworker, you’ll be using your community services course knowledge to support those affected by it. You’ll find housing and provide services that allow vulnerable women and their children to meet their basic needs.
Family Support Coordinator
Again working to find housing and other services, but this time for vulnerable families, the family support coordinator will work - often in emergencies - to find suitable places for displaced people when they need it the most. The contribution you make in this job can make a huge difference to the happiness and safety of those you’re helping.
AOD Support Worker
Another role that your community services courses can prepare you for is Alcohol & Other Drugs (AOD) support worker. Drugs and alcohol can wreak havoc in people’s lives, and in this role, you’ll be providing emotional and practical support, guiding recovering addicts to an existence without dependency.
