More than 4 million Australians receive aged care or disability support and demand is strong for frontline support service workers. This unit introduces learners to the skills and knowledge needed to provide individualised services to support independence, or physical and emotional wellbeing within a community service context.
This unit is interactive with industry-appropriate activities and assessments created to provide learners with job-ready skills.
