Overview

Community Services is a sector with a variety of challenging and interesting roles and opportunities allowing you to specialise in the sector or work as a generalist. Our Community Services Course will help prepare you for the outside world.

Your training is a combination of classroom and practical elements like role plays, simulations and compulsory work placement. This gives you the skills and knowledge to provide services that maintain a therapeutic alliance with clients living with mental health issues.

You will also learn how to work from a recovery-oriented perspective that is strengths-based and client-centered. You will gain the skills and knowledge to become a practitioner in this sector which includes fields such as counselling, referral, advocacy and education/health promotion services.

We teach key community services skills, providing students with a solid foundation that can be applied across a range of general and specialised areas. This includes a focus on person-centred and strengths-based approaches, working with diversity, case planning, and legal and ethical requirements. For example, being person-centred and focusing on the strengths of a person or group are at the core of community services work and help facilitate meaningful and sustainable support and change.

After receiving plenty of face-to-face training and role plays to make sure you feel ready and confident to take the next step, you will be able to apply what you have learned in our simulated Clinical Practice module allowing you to use your newly acquired skills with real or simulated clients.
