Support our young people to achieve a bright future.
The Certificate III in Education Support provides participants with the skills to assist school teaching staff in the care and supervision of a class of students, ranging from kindergarten to year 10.
Participants will learn how to:
- Implement planned education programs
- Assist students in their learning and development
- Contribute to the safety and health of students
- Support students with additional needs
Participants will also learn how to work with children and young people at risk of harm, culturally diverse students, families and co-workers, and gain an introductory knowledge into working with children with special needs.
As part of this qualification, participants are required to undertake a supervised work placement in order to apply the skills and knowledge learned.
This course requires a mandatory work placement with an employer or participation in a 'live works' training area of the college. Prior to work placement with an employer or participating in a live works training area, you will need to be fully vaccinated, or you may not be able to successfully complete the course.
