There are no formal prerequisites for this qualification. It is recommended that students are 18 years of age or older and have a sound understanding of English, good communication and interpersonal skills.

You will also be required to obtain a National Police Clearance check and in some jurisdictions a Working with Vulnerable People check.

For students who are completing a specialization in Disability – A working with Children’s check will also be required.  It involves a national criminal history check and a review of findings of workplace misconduct. The result of a Working with Children Check is valid for five years. If you have a Working with Children’s check already, it must be less than five years old.

The course contains a minimum of 120 hours of work placement

A work placement is a highly stimulating and rewarding part of the course. It will enable you to participate in a real workplace and put into practice the new skills and knowledge that you are learning in the course.

You will need to undertake your work placement in residential aged care, home care environment or community support setting. It is not paid work.

If you work in the industry, have had prior experience or would like to seek recognition for a combination of skills and experience, RPL is available for this course. See Training NSW RPL Candidate Guide for an explanation of the RPL process and then ask our staff if you are interested.

Credit Transfer – This is giving credit for learning outcomes a student has already achieved. Hope Institute for Further Education will recognise the Qualification or Statement of Attainment issued to a student, by another RTO, in mutual recognition, on provision of a certified copy for verification purposes, on enrolment.

Recognition of Prior Learning and Credit Transfer are again discussed with students at  induction stage.
