Study options to suit your needs

  • Certificate IV courses are entry level qualifications and are suitable for school leavers or people starting out in the community services sector.
  • Diploma-level courses build on existing knowledge, and are suitable for people who have an entry-level qualification, are changing careers, or already working in the sector and would like to build on their skills and knowledge. Some students also use Diploma studies as a stepping stone to future university studies in fields such as social work, psychology and social sciences.
  • Connected Classroom enables access to students from regional and remote locations, and flexibility for students who are already working in the sector. Students will require access to a computer and internet and can connect at a TAFE campus by accessing the Library or on their personal computer at home or work.
