TAFE SA community and family services graduates can pursue careers in community development. The community services sector includes roles with children, older people and people with disabilities, as well as refugees and people in need of advocacy. You could also find employment delivering recreation, education or employment programs that benefit communities.
Our counselling courses can lead to a range of roles in the community services sector. Topics covered include counselling practice, risk, ethics and cultural diversity. Financial counsellors provide a specialist service, working with people facing debt and other financial issues.
I chose to study the Certificate IV in Youth Work (CHC40413) because I was at a crossroad in my life and I felt like I wanted to be able to help young people with the challenges they faced in today’s society. With my love of the outdoors I felt I could offer young people an experience that they might not have had before which would help them to manage the difficult situations they were dealing with in their lives.
Through my study I have been able to gain the knowledge I needed to gain employment as a NDIS Mentor at Employment Options. Here I have been able to put into practice what I have learnt from my study and share my love of bicycles with my clients to help them achieve their best.
