Training for Individual Support (Disability Support)

Our tailored training focuses on physical assistance, emotional support, and personal care for individuals with disabilities. Throughout this course, you will be provided with ongoing support from our dedicated, highly experienced trainers.

The Australian Governments Job Outlook service states that the disability sector is one of the largest and fastest growing industries, approximately employing 180,000 aged and disability carers. With these numbers set to grow over the coming years, skilled support professionals will become more important than ever before. This course is offered in a few areas throughout New South Wales, to coincide with the ongoing shortage of trained disability workers in these areas.
