Provide Individual Support Skill Set

Share this course on your social media page

Learn how to provide individualised support!

Many individuals require support services to help them live an independent and fulfilling life — including people with physical or intellectual disability, older people, and vulnerable members of the community.

This is highly rewarding work, but employers look for people who are job ready with basic skills and knowledge for entry level roles in one-on-one or group support settings, or for administrative role in a care facility. With the 3 week Provide Individual Support Skill Set, that will be you! 

You'll learn:
  • about following a client's individual care or support plan to meet their personal support needs
  • how to comply with personal hygiene standards
  • maintain food safety and contribute to the cleanliness of food handling areas and dispose of food appropriately
  • prepare for and provide medication assistance and complete medication documentation
  • supporting a client to self-administer medication
  • safe work practices for the health and safety of yourself and your clients
  • how to recognise potentially hazardous manual tasks and complete those tasks in a safe manner
