Individual Support – Disability Skill Set

Introduction

There is nothing quite like the personal touch. For both client and provider, the rewards of individualised care go beyond the satisfaction of a job well done.  

As knowledge and attitudes around disability evolve, and we come to understand the enormous diversity of needs associated with it, the demand for more nuanced responses to individual circumstances will grow.

This course lets you add strings to your bow and opens the door to more personally rewarding employment in the care sector.

For employers and organisations, this short course enriches your talent base and broadens the scope of your service offering, allowing you to remain nimble and respond to the increasing diversity of client needs.
