Certificate III in Care Support – Draft 2 Validation

Please provide feedback to this review if you are involved in disability, home or aged care. It is proposed that this qualification should be endorsed for delivery in the new year.

Draft 2 of the proposed new Certificate III in Care Support qualification is now available for comment on the SkillsIQ Feedback Forum. The Draft 2 qualification is modelled on the current Certificate III in Individual Support, with amended packaging rules and a broader range of electives which aims to make it more appropriate to the needs of the Aged Care sector, while also being broadly applicable across the Disability and Home & Community Care sectors.

A Validation Guide summarising the proposed changes and key consultation questions is available and can be downloaded from the Feedback Forum which can be accessed by clicking here.

Throughout the consultation period, which will run from Monday, 18 November to Friday, 6 December 2019, SkillsIQ will be conducting a number of webinars to engage industry stakeholders and gather feedback. For further information, or to register for a webinar, please click here.
