CHC43015 Certificate IV in Ageing Support

CRICOS Code: 093548E

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.

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).
