Do you want to learn more about the NDIS or make a difference to people with disabilities?

The course is designed for:

• people who have just started working in the disability sector as a direct support worker (DSW)
• people already working in the disability sector who would like to learn more about the NDIS
• aged care workers, nurses, education support workers, childcare workers, mental health workers
• all people who work, or may want to work with people as they access community-based services and other support services.

The course provides a pathway to further qualifications – it is not intended as a replacement for full certificate-level qualifications.

This course is offered with flexible delivery including evenings, days, school holidays and weekends.


• Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for a fortnight (with an additional day required for assessment purposes)

Please note: This course is free for students eligible for concession and government-subsidised training.
