About the course

This nationally recognised Skill Set (CHCSS00098) 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 people with disability.

Who is the course for?

This course is for people who have gained their Certificate III in Individual Support or have gained equivalent experience, in disability support and want further understanding as to how to provide the best care to their clients who live with disabilities.

The disability care sector needs educated individuals to fill roles in the industry. This course is for caring people who like to help others and is 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.

This also leads to increased possibility of employment for you, due to our industry connections and understanding.

Why choose to study with Enhance Training?

We’re happy to acknowledge that there are many training organisations that offer support worker courses similar to ours, across the country. So why is Enhance Training the right choice for your career? What’s the Enhance Training difference?

We are the industry.

Enhance Training is for those who want the best education for themselves and the best results for their clients. We don’t just understand the support work industry, we are the support work industry. Enhance Training is part of the Hessel Group, which both employs people and assists those seeking disability support, aged care, childcare services and allied health professions.

Unlike many training providers, we are an end to end service. This means that through Enhance Training and the wider Hessel Group you can become qualified, complete training and even progress to positions within our wide network of Hessel Group care services.

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.
