About the course
Our Individual Support - Ageing Skill Set (CHCSS00097) course is for people working in various care and support roles in the community services sector who wish to develop skills in providing person centred support to older people.
It's self paced! So you’re welcome to complete it in your own time without, impacting your day to day routines.
Who is the course for?
This course is for people who have gained their Certificate III, or equivalent experience, in individual support but want further understanding as to how to provide the best care to their clients who are in the ageing community.
The aged care sector needs educated individuals to fill roles in the industry. This course is for caring individuals who like to help others. It’s perfect for those wanting to develop their skills in providing person-centred support.
In house student support
You will receive great student support throughout your studies with Enhance Training where you will have your own trainer providing support or for more individualised strategies, a learner support service (LSS) case manager will be assigned to you. LSS is an initiative of SkillsSA and the Government of South Australia and supports you with study plans, flexible study delivery, after hours support and guidance which also extends after your training is complete.

We are the industry
Enhance Training is for those who want the best education for themselves and the best results for the people they get to work with. We don’t just understand the early learning and childcare industries, we are the early learning and childcare industries. Enhance Training is part of the Hessel Group, which both employs people and assists those who are seeking disability support, aged care, childcare services and allied health services.
Unlike many training providers, we are an end to end service. This means that through Enhance Training and the wider Hessel Group you learn, complete placement, become qualified, complete training and even progress to positions within our wide network of Hessel Group care services and clients.
Direct from the experts
Our teachers and trainers are IN the industry too. They have direct, recent, first-hand experience in the industry so can relate to your questions and queries about the topic and demonstrate how these scenarios may play out on the job.
Real life practice, without the pressure
We have a dedicated Skills Lab which is set up with real equipment to mimic environments you may come across on the job. This means you can practice the skills you’ve gained, in full, minimising the stress of being faced with scenarios for the first time out in the real world. We find this helps our students to gain a positive understanding of their skills, without pressure.
