The group are now two months into the course.
"I'd never studied disability support, but after teaching children with disability in a previous placement, I became more interested in going down that path. I'm really enjoying the course and finding that it (disability support) is something I am completely interested in. I really like how the sector is looking moving forward – it’s not just about making sure the client’s basic needs are met, but there’s an emphasis on making sure people with disability are participating in the community, socialising and getting out and about.

"I had done part of my Cert III in disability a few years back, and I joined up for this course because I wanted to update my qualifications and become more job-ready. It’s been good to learn more about the NDIS -I’m pleased the NDIS has a more flexible, client-specific approach. I've enjoyed hearing stories from past students or parents in the course when they talk about their own experiences and journeys in the disability area. It’s been a great chance to meet new people as well." - Trudy (picture below, left)
"Before the course, when I thought of people with disability, I only thought of people in a wheelchair or other physically disabilities. But I now know it’s so much more than that. I’ve learnt a lot about different types of disabilities and how to work with a wide range of people. Our trainer Tricia is great - we've covered a lot of topics like reporting and how to identify and reach clients' goals. I’m really enjoying my placement at Forbes Primary School, where I'm working with special needs children, and I'm seeing the things we've learnt in training coming into play during my placement. I'm happy - I'm really enjoying it all." - Carol-Lyn
This fully-subsidised course enables successful participants to gain employment in a wide range of roles within the disability support sector, including new jobs expected to be created through the NDIS.
You’ll be able to gain this nationally recognised qualification through flexible, friendly and supportive group settings with learning support or case management if you need it.
The course will equip you with the practical skills and knowledge to support people with disability in any environment, whether it be in your community or the workplace. This is also a fantastic opportunity for those needing to upgrade or renew a previous Certificate III in Disability.
