Launch a rewarding career
TAFE Queensland East Coast provides an innovative, collaborative and inclusive face to face training program for people wanting to study Cert III in Individual Support (Disability specialisation).
Students from the SCHI campus collaborate with our Access and Equity program for students with a disability. We have designed an inclusive mentoring program that supplements our face to face class work. In addition, industry staff provide further mentoring by providing information on current industry standards and practices. Past Certificate III students acknowledge they are equally mentored and supported by the Access students and have learned so much by developing real peer relationships with the Access students.
It also enables the teachers to assess students in a simulated supported workplace. Students are also required to complete a further vocational placement in industry at the end of classes. Graduating students enter industry with more confidence due to the higher practical component of this course. Our local industry acknowledges the calibre of our students: “SPIRAL, as an organisation, has been extremely impressed with the high quality attributes of the TAFE East Coast students who have completed their practicum placements with us. We have been impressed with the students’ sound grounding in person centeredness, their respectful engagement with service users, and enthusiasm and openness to learning new skills. In addition, we have found the students to be professional, very good at time management as well as demonstrating flexibility and adaptability in their roles. Spiral would certainly consider employing students where recruitment opportunities may come up."
So join us for a unique learning experience that will provide you with knowledge, skills and industry contacts that you need to launch your career. Course details
