Australian Professional Skills Institute

The Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing, Home and Community) is designed to provide training to entry level workers who want to work in residential aged care facilities, community care, nursing homes, disability care, community based organisations and hospitals.

This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting (residential aged care facilities) who follow an individualised plan for provision of person-centred care to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason. Workers are being required to increasingly support people in their homes, support people with increasingly complex needs, to tailor care and support approaches to meet individual needs with increased ‘client’ choice.

The course combines both theory and practical training, with the bulk of the learning and assessment in the workplace where learners will be practising newly acquired knowledge through delivery of skills in areas relating to personal care, assisting people to maintain independence in their home of choice and provide welfare and support services to assist some of the most vulnerable people in the community.

Delivery Location: Wellington Fair, 40 Lord Street, East Perth and at the Workplace (for traineeship)
