Learning Objectives Overview

This course reflects the role of individuals in the community settings and peoples’ homes, who provide support in a manner that empowers people with disabilities to achieve greater levels of independence, self-reliance, community participation and wellbeing. Workers promote a person-centred approach, work according to and may contribute to an individualised plan, and work without direct supervision. They may be required to supervise and/or coordinate a small team. These individuals take responsibility for their own outputs within the scope of their job role and delegation. 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. The skills in this course must be applied in accordance with Commonwealth and State/Territory legislation, Australian standards and industry codes of practice. To achieve this course, the student must have completed at least 120 hours of work as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency.
