Working in Disabilities is never boring. Working in care challenges you every day emotionally, physically and mentally. At times you may wonder if you are getting anywhere and then you get a smile, a pat on the back or someone is able to do something they couldn’t do the day before. You can make a difference to someone’s day and someone’s life.

This qualification is for persons interested in a career in disability or existing workers in the sector, with skills and knowledge to successfully co-ordinate and manage services in the disability sector, or to work in specialised disability support roles. You may work autonomously and/or have responsibility for the supervision and/or management of other staff, volunteers, students, programs or services.

The community services and health industries is the fastest growing workforce sector, experiencing the greatest need for employees, with 24% of workforce growth in 2012, increasing at a rate of 3% each year or 170,000 jobs (Industry Skills Council, 2008). There is a recognised skills shortage for disability workers. With the ongoing demands of disability organisations, this shortage will continue in years to come.
