    Employment Outcomes

    This management stream qualification covers workers who are responsible for coordination and management of smaller organisations or of branches/departments of large organisations. These people work independently and report to executive management or boards of management. They undertake a range of functions requiring the application of knowledge and skills to achieve results in line with the organisation's goals and strategic directions. This qualification also applies to managers of program areas, projects or delivery of services in the community services industry, including managing community houses and volunteer services/programs. They may work in a range of sectors such as housing, children's services, alcohol and other drugs, mental health, community care, disability and aged care.
