Certificate III in Community Services

If you are thinking of a career in helping people in your community, then the Certificate III in Community Services is a great place to start that journey. Community Service workers support individuals through the provision of person-centred services and implementing community-based programs. 

You will need to organise a 100 hour supervised work placement in a Community Services organisation to be able to complete the assessment requirements of the course. 

This qualification can be a pathway to further study and a lifelong career that contributes to the well-being of our society.

The Community Services industry offers graduates a diversity of opportunities, which is reflected in the wide range of industry experiences of our highly qualified teachers, including: child protection, counselling, case management, youth work, family, settlement services, disability, alcohol and other drugs, mental health, community development and aged care.

The units of study are organised into four clusters that group together competencies with meaning and purpose related to work functions and needs in the industry. This enables students to build on knowledge and skills through a quality learning and assessment experience that maximises outcomes.

The learning material and assessments are accessed through our Online Learning Support (OLS) website and students participate in their learning through reading the content, engaging in learning activities and undertaking a 100 hour work placement. Students gain the qualification by demonstrating their knowledge and skills through online quizzes, forum discussions, written assessments and tasks completed in the workplace.

Students can interact with other students through social media and with their teachers through web tutorials, discussion forums, email and phone.
