Disability Support Courses

Do you have a caring nature and enjoy helping other people?

Disability Support Workers assist people living with a disability to reach greater levels of independence, self-reliance, community participation and wellbeing.

Our hands-on courses teach the knowledge and skills that you will need to provide individualised care to someone living with disability in a community or residential setting. Courses range from 3 months to 12 months, depending on the level of qualification. You could be starting your brand new career within a matter of months!

A career in the Disability Support sector can be very rewarding, and this growing sector offers a variety of career pathways. Following the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), the demand for quality Disability Support Workers has continued to grow.
