In a nutshell
The Certificate IV in Disability (CHC43115) reflects the role of workers in a range of community settings and clients’ homes, who provide training and 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 without direct supervision and may be required to supervise and/or coordinate a small team.
The course includes 120 hours of mandatory practical placement in Industry, which All Health Training organise on students behalf.
If a participant is currently working in the disability sector you would be required to demonstrate working in the role for 120 hours. This can be done via payslips or a letter from your workplace that we can verify. This allows participant to complete practical activities within their job role.
What you’ll need
Students must meet the following entry requirements:
- This is an open entry program of study with participants needing to read, write and communicate in English to a level to perform the job. Students will be required to complete a LLN evaluation to determine suitability.
- Students must be over 18 years of age to conduct practical placement.
- Police checks are required prior to commencing practical placement which we will organise on our students’ behalf. If a student has a Disclosable Court Outcome registered against their name, we are unable to assist with placement as industry will not accept students without a clear record. This requirement is not negotiable. Please note, in Victoria this includes any offence that may have occurred up to 10 years ago and will show offences that state they are “without conviction”.
- Students are required to obtain a volunteer Working with Children’s check (WWC) to commence placement.
- Students are required to be able to access a computer which will allow use of a USB in order to complete assessments and read information for units of competency.
