What Jobs Can I Qualify for with my Certificate III in Individual Support?


Aged Care Support Worker

General residential assistance, clinical care, emotional support, and companionship are provided by aged care support workers. A career in the aged care sector can be pretty rewarding, but it requires several qualities to deal with the challenges that come with the job.

The Certificate III in Individual Support helps students build the competence needed to work in elderly care, from clinical capabilities to interpersonal skills. Graduates can utilize their diplomas to apply for entry-level work in various fields, including retirement homes, hospitals, private residences and community organisations.

Disability Support Worker

Individuals with disabilities are cared for and supervised by disability support workers in order to maximize their emotional and physical well-being. Since the implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), thousands of new jobs in disability support have been established, promising strong employment growth in the future.

Nursing Assistant

In clinical care settings, nursing assistants play a critical role. Nursing assistants help healthcare teams care for patients while also providing administrative support. Because nursing assistants are frequently asked to assist with lifting and transferring patients, this job can be physically demanding.
