Helping the most disadvantaged Australians is a difficult task and one that not everyone is suited for. But if you have a caring nature and are drawn to supporting those who really need it, a Diploma of Community Services may be the perfect move for you.
The Diploma of Community Services covers roles that include service delivery directly to clients, or to community development or education projects. Individuals who possess this qualification are often responsible for the supervision of volunteers and other staff.
You will need to provide a range of evidence to assist your assessor to make an informed decision about your competence and previous community services experience. The types of evidence you may be asked to provide can include:
Payslips/work contract/ABN if self-employed
Letter of Employment
Current employment contracts
Letters of reference from licensed tradesmen you have worked with.
Videos or photos of your work.
Evidence of overseas qualifications.
Transcripts or assessments from related previous qualifications.
