About this course
Progress your career in the community services sector by completing the Certificate IV in Community Services. This course will teach you the problem solving skills needed, to work with people from diverse backgrounds, so that you can make a difference to their circumstances.
You will be qualified to work within a community development framework and help plan and conduct group activities for clients, whilst implementing health promotion programs. You will also gain a range of practical skills and knowledge that will assist you to respond and intervene when critical situations arise, such as children at risk, mental health and domestic violence.
Being able to communicate and work effectively with these clients is the most important skill to possess, as you need to be able to support the social, emotional and physical wellbeing of individuals and advocate person-centered services to individuals and/or groups.
As part of this course, you will undertake a supervised or simulated work placement where you will be able to apply the skills and knowledge you have learned.
If you wish to further your studies, you can enrol into the Diploma of Community Services.
