Work in community and family services supporting: children, older adults, people with disabilities, marginalised groups, culturally and linguistically diverse communities, and/or people in need of advocacy. Learn how to provide specialised services by studying counselling or financial counselling and at the same time, start your pathway to university via TAFE SA to uni credit transfer, or through one of our dual offer courses.
After meeting a man experiencing homelessness, Melanie was motivated to make a career move from the hospitality and tourism sector. She decided to study a Certificate IV in Community Services at TAFE SA, with the goal of fulfilling a life-long desire to work in domestic violence support services. Her study experience was a positive one. ‘I can’t speak highly enough about the lecturers. Each one shared exceptional experience and knowledge that is relevant. They were flexible, kind, understanding, and incredibly approachable and supportive. They are there to provide an environment of empowerment, and to see you succeed. They want to see you excel.
I can’t recommend this course enough for those that wish to work in this sector. TAFE SA will provide excellence in service delivery, support, and empowerment. Melanie plans to keep studying with TAFE SA, by enrolling in the Diploma of Community Services.
