Our Diploma of Community Services (Case Management) provides you with the knowledge and skills required to perform as a professional community services worker, across a variety of settings within the social and community services industry.
These may include areas such as mental health, homelessness, family and domestic violence, child protection, employment support, migrant services and a specific pathway in to the child protection industry.
While completing this course, our dedicated placement officers will find you two 200-hour practical placements (400 hours in total) at a community services agency of your preference.
Placement will not only ensure you are competent and work ready, but will also provide you with experience working as a community services worker, valuable networks and references for when you are looking for a job in the field.
Students in the day course will also take part in a community project that will give you the skills to develop, implement and review projects within the community services sector.
This interactive and supportive course ensures that you develop the skills, knowledge and confidence you require to support your growth as a professional worker in the community services sector.
Most classes are delivered face to face, although there is some requirement for online learning using our e-learning platform.
Part of the course training is offered in our modern simulation lab, where you will get to practice and experience intake, assessment and counselling skills with real life scenarios.
If you are interested in pursuing a career in DHHS child protection, you will need to complete the Diploma of Community Services (Case Management) as you require an ACWA (Australian Community Workers Association) accredited course to work in that area.
The Diploma of Community Services (Case Management) is accredited by the Australian Community Workers Association (ACWA).
However, to work across youth, family, disability, refugee, family/domestic violence, aged care, homelessness etc, only a standard Diploma of Community Services is required.
