The Diploma of Community Services provides students with the knowledge and skills to work in the community services sector in residential and community settings. Students will learn how to provide a holistic approach to client needs, including social, emotional, psychological and practical support.
Students will need to successfully complete work placements, for which they will be required to hold a current Police Check and a current Working with Children Check.
The course includes a mix of delivery methods, such as face-to-face class time, online work, project work and industry experience (work placement).
This course may be undertaken on-campus or in a workplace training mode, which may be suited to those currently employed in the community services sector.
