Whether you’re looking at study options after high school, wanting to upskill within your current industry, or returning to the workforce, figuring out your next career move can be a daunting prospect! Brite Institute offers a number of short courses and certificates for the disability and aged care sectors, as well as study options for people with disability. Our CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support is a great option for those searching for entry level pathways, and we’ve put together some career options that may be available to you once you finish your course with Brite Institute!
The CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support offered at Brite is one pathway leading to a career as a Community Worker. Community Workers are qualified to assist across a range of areas. Similar to the role of the Personal Care Worker, Community Workers are experienced in finding solutions to issues or barriers for both individuals and the larger community. If you enjoy working with others, have great communications skills and love to take every opportunity to help others, you would be a fantastic fit as a Community Worker. With the ability to provide entry into roles such as this, the CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support is a qualification that has the ability to make a real difference.
Another vital role that you could get from your CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support is as a Home Carer. These courses teach you the basics of individual care and the ability to provide personal support to vulnerable people. With this experience, you could find work as a Residential Support Worker, an Accommodation Support Officer, an In-Home Respite Worker, or even a Nursing Assistant. Though these roles come with a lot of responsibility in providing basic care and support to those in aged care homes, disability care or hospital, they are also incredibly rewarding, knowing that you are using your skills to help others.
Aged Care Worker
If you’re wanting to work in an aged care support role, a CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support could help you get your foot in the door as an Aged Care Worker! This role focuses on helping aged care residents live each day with dignity by helping to provide quality physical, emotional, and clinical support. In these dynamic positions you’ll uphold high care standards and liaise with aged care residents and their families, as well as other team members, to provide support for your residents’ wants and needs. This care role will see you work as part of a larger team, and is great for people who love to help and engage with a number of people every day.
Disability Support Worker
As a Disability Support Worker you can undertake a number of roles that help to improve the lives of people with disability. You will help to provide care to people with disability in the community, and help them live a full and engaging life. You’ll get to spend your day (or night) with a person needing vital support, providing assistance with personal care, managing risk, and updating others in their care team on their support needs. As part of this role, you’ll get to provide a stimulating home environment for children or adults with disability, and grow to form a genuine connection with the people you are supporting. Starting in this role may require a CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support, a CHC43115 Certificate IV in Disability, or at least the intention to complete one during the early stages of your career.
