Disability support can take place in the community, a client's home, or a residential facility. It supports people with disability, across all ages and circumstances. Working in disability care is a highly rewarding career, where you can truly make a positive difference in people's lives.
This course is the perfect introduction to working in disability care. You'll learn how to follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to disability or some other reason and gain knowledge and skills to work effectively with people with disability in a way that enables them to maintain independence; provide individualised support; work safely; and working with people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
What a great way to start a great career!
