OCA's Work Effectively In The Community Sector short course will give you an opportunity to kickstart your career or formalise existing community work skills.

"Really enjoying the course! Keeping me busy and very enjoyable. I’ve learnt so much in such a short time. I can’t wait to get an aged care job; it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I’m very glad this course was recommended to me, I’ll be recommending it to my friends and family too." - Mikala

Work within Community Services is both diverse and broad, and it is common for you to be required to work across many different sectors under the community services umbrella.

More Content. More Skills. More Value.

Often when working in the Community Services sector, you will be required to work with other sectors in order to meet client needs. Your clients will have many different needs that must be addressed, and your service alone may not be able to meet these needs. So it may be necessary to refer to another service in a different sector that will be able to provide the services you require.

For example, a client in a mental health service may require drug and alcohol services as well. Or a mother in a domestic violence situation may require housing assistance, and child protection services may be involved as well.

So you will often be required to work within many different services throughout the community services sector.

This course provides you with the knowledge and ability to provide ethical support while addressing the needs of elderly people in your home, workplace or community. You’ll learn how ageing impacts us physically and psychologically, and how you can support older people with counselling and aged care services.
