A day in the life of a Behavioural Support Worker

Are you interested in helping people with disabilities to improve their quality of life by creating individualised strategies that are designed to reduce destructive behaviours, such as self-harm, aggression or property destruction? With Australia’s ageing population, it’s likely that we will see more of these age related behaviours and if you have the personality that flourishes when they help others, you will always have a very secure form of employment.

You will work with a diverse range of patients, who usually suffer from cognitive disabilities, resulting in behaviours that are of concern to both carers and the patient’s family. You will focus on reducing both the impact and occurrence of a range of complex behaviours, addressing the underlying causes of these challenging behaviours, while providing a positive and supportive environment that safeguards the patent’s dignity and quality of life.

At NCA, we offer a Certificate IV in Disability - CHC4315, providing you with the skills and resources you will need to excel in such a challenging role.
