The community services industry needs people just like YOU! By completing training in individual support, you open the door to a wide variety of jobs.
There is a high demand for workers in Aged, Home and Community and Disability support, and this demand is growing every day.
From Productivity Commission Report 2011
If you prefer flexible hours, this is the job for you! Support Workers are required 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – which means you are not restricted to a 9 to 5 job.
Daisy Learning training in individual support may be just the beginning and open pathways to many different careers. For example, most of our courses can share many units, so dual qualifications may be as simple as completing a couple of extra units. Students can also apply to complete Certificate IV’s. Many students use our training as a stepping stone toward nursing.
As a Nationally Recognised Qualification, your can work anywhere in Australia.
Government incentives are available to encourage eligible students who undertake training to develop skills in aged care.
