KM Training is the Marketing and referral partner for RTO code 22037.

General: This qualification reflects the role of support workers who complete specialised tasks and functions in aged services; either in residential, home or community based environments. Workers will take responsibility for their own outputs within defined organisation guidelines and maintain quality service delivery through the development, facilitation and review of individualised service planning and delivery.

Workers may be required to demonstrate leadership and have limited responsibility for the organisation and the quantity and quality of outputs of others within limited parameters.

Entry requirements: Prospective students are required to complete a Language Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) assessment and a Pre-Training Interview, administered by and to the satisfaction of ITHEA and be at least 18 years of age.

Employment Growth: The number of people working as Aged and Disabled Carers is expected to grow very strongly over the next 5 years from 175,800 in 2018 to 245,000 by 2023. Job openings can come from new jobs being created, but most come from turnover (workers leaving). There are likely to be around 179,000 job openings over 5 years (that’s about 35,800 a year).

Vocational outcomes: Students can go into a range of employment options. Occupations may include Aged Care Activity Worker, Care Service Team Leader, Care Supervisor (Aged Care)
