People with disabilities want to achieve a high quality of life, just like everyone else. You can support and empower people to live with their challenges and achieve more independence, self-reliance, and well-being in order to pursue their goals.
The Certificate IV in Disability is a professional accreditation that focuses on the skills required to provide care for people with disabilities in a community or residential setting.
Because this work requires a person-centred approach, our teaching will prepare you to confidently work without direct supervision and even to be able to coordinate a small team. Your learning will blend theoretical and practical knowledge so that you’re ready to support individuals with disabilities in the healthcare industry.
