What can I do with a Certificate III in Individual Support?

This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to ageing. Work involves using discretion and judgement in relation to individual support as well as taking responsibility for own outputs.  Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support. Graduates from this program can work as personal care worker, aged and disability support worker in: Aged care centres, nursing homes, retirement villages, residential aged care facilities or home care.

To achieve this qualification, candidates must have completed both theory assessments and at least 120 hours of work as detailed in the assessment requirements of the units of competency.

Entry requirements

Entry requirements:

  • Satisfactory numeracy and literacy skills to undertake this course, or
  • Mature age and have sufficient work experience to successfully undertake this course

Vocational placement requirements:

Before commencing vocational placement, all students must process a current Police Check and complete the simulation tasks for units:

  • CHCCCS011 Meet personal support needs

Students are required to complete at least 120 hours of work placement as part of course requirements. We understand the industry and will assist you in finding Work Placement. GBCA work placement coordinator, GBCA trainers and the student will work collaboratively in securing a work placement.

Once you are marked satisfactory in the required units, you apply for work placement by completing an online placement application form. You can indicate your availability and preferred location. We endeavour to place you in an aged care facility and/or disability facility and/or community care setting of your choice, however, we cannot guarantee this as it depends on the availability in the facilities of your preferred location.

Once you submit your form, all parties will work towards securing a place for you.
Remember, Aged care facilities and/or Disability and/or community care facilities prefer students who are both flexible and reliable.
On average, it takes approximately 4 weeks to secure a work placement.

The Fair Work Act 2009, under the definition of Vocational Placement in section 12 outlines the rules restricting unpaid work. The Fair Work Ombudsman provides a clear explanation of these rules in the Internships, Vocational Placements & Unpaid Work Fact Sheet.  

Due to the requirement to complete the vocational placement, a final outcome for each unit would not be provided until the relevant component of vocational placement had been completed.
