Study Individual Support (Ageing, Home and Community)

Gain the practical skills and knowledge needed to provide individual support in aged care as well as home and community settings.

Course Overview


The Certificate III in Individual Support will give you the skills you need to provide individualised support and care to people in aged care and home, and community settings.

The health, aged care, and community services sector is predicted to experience strong growth over the next five years with an excess of 50,000 job openings expected. This is due to an increased demand for aged care support, support for people with a disability through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and other individualised home and community support.

  • Provide individualised support
  • Support independence and wellbeing
