Community Careers with a Future

Study at National College Australia and choose from one of the many community careers available, where you can make a positive difference in someone’s life.
Your Career in Community Services
Australia’s ageing population means demand for skilled workers in the community services sector will significantly increase in the next two decades. In fact, one in four new jobs are in community services roles. It’s the fastest-growing sector in Australia, with a diverse range of community careers available, from nursing assistance and clinical support, to leadership and management.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme will be rolled out across Australia over the next few years, providing new services and support for people with a disability. This will drive demand for skilled workers at all levels, from entry level roles to leadership positions. It’s the ideal industry if you’re looking for a flexible job, with many full-time, part-time and casual roles available. It also offers a range of work settings, from offices and health clinics, to residential facilities and clients’ homes.
Our courses will provide you with the skills, knowledge and experience you need to secure your job in community services, or take the next step in your career. Many of our students use our courses to broaden their skillsets, or specialise in a particular area, such as disability or mental health. If you’re passionate about helping others and want a successful career in a thriving industry, there’s never been a better time to get a qualification in community services.
