Provide care for ageing citizens with a Certificate IV in Ageing Support. This course teaches students to undertake specialised tasks in aged care services.
About the Course:
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. Trainers are made available to provide tutoring and assistance, and NIET also offer interactive webinars and workshops to help facilitate your learning success. Students are required to attend 120 hours of work placement in aged care hour or community care facilities.
This qualification offers the students the opportunity to learn how to work effectively with older persons while creating an empowering environment and implementing a person-centred approach. The students will also learn how to maintain quality service delivery through the development, facilitation and review of individualised service planning and delivery. Additionally, the qualification will assist students in furthering their skill set and work in a more senior role as a team leader or a supervisor at aged care facility or with a respite/community organisation.

Thank you for the great service and guidance in educating students. I finished my certificate in this college because they’re very helpful and professional.
Words cannot express accurately enough how grateful I am for having Fanny as my trainer during most of my Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. The level of her service delivery was above and beyond my expectations, as well as her ethics and the knowledge and skill set she kindly shared with her students, always with a positive attitude, broad smile and gentleness that are her trademark.
Teachers and general staff are always willing to attend our needs, tutoring, questions or even basic documents from reception. The campus is organised and clean. Library, learning materials and even the kitchen are always available for student’s use. I feel comfortable studying here and supported by my teachers. Having chosen to study Childcare at Charlton Brown has being a great decision. Thank you Fanny and Fei for your constant support both in theory assessments!
Charlton Brown’s trainers are excellent, helping me throughout my Certificate III in Early Childhood Education with incredible examples from the industry, blending their experience and background into the lessons; it really makes the training engaging.
