Course Details

This qualification reflects the role of workers who develop and facilitate programs for young people through a range of community-based programs designed to address the social, behavioural, health, welfare, developmental and protection needs of young people.

This work may be undertaken through employment in community, government and youth sector agencies and workers will be:

  • responsible for implementing policies and guidelines of the employing organisation
  • largely self-directed with fairly autonomous decision-making capacity under the indirect supervision of a manager.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.

ENROLLING IN FIRST AID UNITS OF COMPETENCY
If you are seeking to enrol in a First Aid unit of competency you are advised that to complete the unit you must be able to perform basic life support skills, for example control bleeding and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). If you have a disability that would prevent you from performing required basic life support skills you are advised that you will not be able to achieve the unit of competency.

When you study with TAFE NSW, we want you to succeed. Entry requirements allow us to make sure that you have the right pre-existing knowledge and skills to achieve your chosen qualification. You will need to provide evidence that you meet the requirements listed in this section.

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS

With 130 locations across the state, TAFE NSW tailors qualifications to meet the needs of the local community and specific student groups (like apprentices, fast-tracked and online students). To make sure this course is the right fit for you, we will need you to demonstrate that you can meet the additional requirements below.

STUDENT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES - For more information visit: https://www.tafensw.edu.au/courses/rights-and-responsibilities/index.htm

To be enrolled in this course, you need to be able to provide evidence that you are able to demonstrate a minimum level of literacy to enter and complete the course. This screening will take place at the information sessions. If the learner does not achieve the required entry level, enrolment into CHC32015 Certificate III in Community Services will be accepted. Students must have a Working with Children Check (WWCC) to enable them to go out on their work placement. They must also be prepared to undergo a Criminal Record Check if required to by the host agency.

To successfully complete this course, you will need to complete 18 Units of Competency in the Certificate IV in Youth Work and do a total Work Placement of 120 hours. This can be in their own workplace if the type of employment is assessed as sufficient for the Certificate IV level. Otherwise a suitable placement is negotiated by TAFE NSW negotiating with potential host agencies on the students behalf.
