Women into Work

Certificate III in Individual Support

The Women into Work – Certificate III in Individual Support qualification (with Registered Training Organisation AustCare) will give you the knowledge and specialist skills required to work in an aged care facility and other support and care settings. It is a growth area for employment around Deception Bay, and a key focus will be supporting you with work placements that are linked to potential job outcomes.

But more importantly, it will provide you with a safe and supportive space to navigate the pathway to entering or returning to work! We understand the women can face extra barriers to work, including balancing children, caring etc, and our Local Pathways Development course, that runs alongside your qualifications, will give you a safe and supported space to work all of that out!! Every participant will be allocated their own employment coach that will help you identify and address your barriers in life and work, and you will also be involved in individual and group work to help you with confidence building, skills training, job searching and peer support.

The Individual Support course runs for 12 weeks with an extensive placement (for 3 weeks/130 hours) at the end of the course.

Days are Monday – Thursday 9am – 2:30pm

The course will offered face-to-face at Deception Bay.

Includes: First Aid, CPR, morning tea & lunch.

Our next Individual Support course will be starting April 2021 (subject to success with funding). Please register your interest and we will contact you closer to the start date.
