CHC52015 Diploma of Community Services
The next course will be starting: July 2021
Imagine helping an adolescent rise up after hitting rock bottom; providing a less fortunate child with a loving family, or giving shelter to a woman who has found herself to be homeless in her later years.
The Community Services sector is a highly rewarding field of work, and you can experience it for yourself by studying a Diploma of Community Services with the South Australian Learning Centre.
The Diploma will give you the skills and knowledge you need to advise and supervise other Community Service Workers and case management practices, manage budgets and financial plans, and undertake project work.
Community Services may lead to further study options in Social Sciences, including a Bachelor of Social Work. Career opportunities include work positions in the Community Services sector such as Mental Health, Child Protection, Alcohol and Other Drugs, Domestic Violence, and Youth Services.
This course is Supported by Government of South Australia.
