About this Course:

Provide care for ageing citizens with a Certificate IV in Ageing Support. This course teaches students to undertake specialised tasks in aged care services.

This qualification reflects the role of workers in a range of community settings and clients’ homes, who provide training and support in a manner that empowers people with disabilities to achieve greater levels of independence, self-reliance, community participation and wellbeing. Workers promote a person-centred approach, work without direct supervision and may be required to supervise and/or coordinate a small team.

Students will learn to support independence and empower older people, coordinate health services for older people, and provide support to people living with dementia.

Elective units provide the opportunity to learn additional skills including coordinating home support, providing food services, and provide care to people with complex needs.

We provide a number of study options that enable students to enrol and learn either On-Campus or via Distance.

Regardless of study mode selected, all courses at NIET are built around a robust digital learning platform, with access to rich multimedia learning resources, and online assessment submission.

Trainers are made available to provide tutoring and assistance, and NIET also offer interactive webinars and workshops to help facilitate your learning success.

Students are required to attend 120 hours of work placement in aged care hour or community care facilities.

This course has a minimum of 15 supervised scheduled face to face course contact hours on campus per week as well as 5 distance / online education hours per week. This comes to a total of 20 hours per week. Students are also required to undertake reading, activities, research, assessments and homework.

I’m very grateful to Yanna, Jess and Bri for always helping and pushing be to be better! Going to campus was always so amazing that it never felt like studying, it was something I really enjoyed to be part of. I’m gonna miss so much the trainers and everything. Thanks for creating an amazing environment to us. I had great moments and I learned so much that I will never forget.
