The community services industry is vital for sustaining and maintaining the wellbeing of communities. Community service workers provide aged, disability care and childcare services as well as welfare, health and support services to assist some of the most vulnerable people in the community.
This qualification helps people secure work in community service, in supporting individuals who are aged or disabled, or in some junior child care roles.
