South Australia's population growth is increasing the focus on the community services sector. Government organisations and communities value the skills, knowledge and qualifications of their staff more than ever.

Our qualifications can lead to careers in aged care & disability work, career development, children's services, community services and family support work, counselling, education & teaching support, mental health & drug education, and youth & youth justice work.

As a graduate you may work in community development roles with children, older people, people with disabilities, or those in need of refuge or advocacy.  You could also build a career delivering recreation, education or employment programs that benefit communities.

Employment opportunities are found in children’s services, aged care and respite, home and community care, education support, social housing, out-of-home care, youth services, juvenile residential care, alcohol and drug services, advocacy services, non-clinical mental health, family services and disability respite services.
