What are your career opportunities?

This 6 month qualification is ideal for individuals who want to work in aged care either as a personal care worker, respite worker or in community care. There’s an increasing need for workers to support people in their own homes and those with complex requirements, so this qualification can help you meet the needs of the industry today.

Student entry requirements

This qualification is suited to learners who possess a sufficient grasp of the English language, adequate levels of numeracy, and appropriate attitude and motivation to enable them to undertake the demands of a Certificate III level qualification. As part of the selection process, TSA uses the following guidelines to assess suitability of a learner for the program:
  • All prospective learners will attend a mandatory face to face career counselling session to assess their suitability for this Certificate III level qualification;
  • During this session, TSA’s career advisors reference the career counselling and/or Capacity of Benefit notes to summarise their thoughts on whether to proceed with enrolment or not, based on the interview/conversation. This is then retained in the learner record file;
  • All learners are required to undertake an LLN assessment appropriate for a Certificate III level qualification to assess whether their reading and numeracy skills are sufficient to cope with the training program. The LLN assessment result will be retained in their learner record file;
  • In addition, TSA must reasonably believe the learner is academically suited to undertake the course e.g. employment history and/or prior education/qualifications.
