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.

Growing Demand

aged care bedThere 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

  • The demand for aged care workers is expected to significantly increase over the next 40 years as a result of the increasing number of older Australians requiring care and support and a decline in the relative availability of informal carers.
  • The supply of workers is problematic. The formal aged care system currently faces difficulties in attracting and retaining workers. These difficulties are expected to intensify due to increasing competition for workers as the overall labour market tightens in response to population ageing.

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.
