Community Services courses allow students to learn how to utilise their community skills to help others of different social and cultural backgrounds. Courses in this sector are formulated to equip you with the practical skills and social tools you need to complete organisational and caregiving tasks within any community organisation.

A community services course can lead to a number of job opportunities, from taking care of the elderly as a residential carer to working with those battling addiction as a alcohol and drugs worker. Qualifications in community services can lead to a job as a community worker, case worker, mental health support worker, disability support officer or a volunteer coordinator. The average weekly salary for a community worker is $1,132.

Whether you’re just starting out in your community services career, want to gain more qualifications, add to your previous experience, or simply broaden your horizons, TAFE NSW offers a wide variety of courses at a number of levels to suit you. TAFE courses in the area include Community Services, Youth Work, Community Pharmacy, Individual Support (Ageing, Home and Community) and Vocational and Community Engagement.
