The new Certificate III in Individual Support replaces Certificate III in Aged Care, Certificate III in Disability and Certificate III in Home and Community Care.
Certificate III in Individual Support CHC33015 offers specialisations in Ageing Support, Home and Community Support and Disability. The qualification offers flexibility for a learner to choose a range of electives to meet their job role. Also, a learner can undertake either one or two specialisations, which would be identified on their transcript.
This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason. Work involves using discretion and judgement in relation to individual support as well as taking responsibility for own outputs. Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support.
The Certificate III in Individual support is made up of 13 units of competency. Students will have to undertake certain elective units to achieve specialisation Ageing Support, Home and Community Support or Disability.
To achieve this qualification, the candidate must have completed at least 120 hours of work as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency.

Each learner and workplace are unique and with this in mind we tailor the learning & assessment strategies in consultation with the employer and student. Here at Auctus we take a very practical approach and while there is some theoretical learning involved in each of the topics, the major focus is how this theory makes a difference in the workplace.
