Dual Qualifications

What is a Dual Qualification?

A dual qualification means we’ve combined two different but related qualifications into one comprehensive course.

They allow you to complete two qualifications without having to do twice the amount of work because there are subject areas that overlap.  Dual qualifications are a great way to develop your vocational credentials and prepare yourself for a workforce that is big on diversity of skills and abilities.

Save time and money

By completing a dual qualification, you'll save time and money.

Double the accreditation

Because you'll receive two certificates, you'll hold two nationally recognised qualifications.

Boost your skills

Today's workforce needs people who have a range of skills and knowledge; a dual qualification will give you greater diversity in what you're able to offer the workplace.

Diversity of pathways

You'll have more options to choose from as you move forward with your career.

Why Study in the Care Sector?

Our dual qualifications have been designed for the aged care, home care and disability sectors.

Caring for others can be a very satisfying career because you’re helping some of our most vulnerable people enjoy a better quality of life. The work often offers flexible hours and will give you skills that are transferable and can be used anywhere in Australia and around the world. You’ll also meet and interact with people from all walks of life and have the freedom to work with a range of organisations, from small businesses to large corporates. Whether you secure a job as a personal care worker or make your way up to management, studying a nationally recognised qualification will give you peace of mind, knowing your job and future in the industry is a bit more secure.

Your Career Pathway

There are many different career pathways you can take in the care sector. Below are just a few of the job roles available once you graduate from National College Australia.
