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.

The student is required to undertake a minimum of 200 hours of work placement experience in a relevant aged care setting in the community services industry. AGC has prescribed an extra 80 hours work placement over the 120 hours set as the minimum in the training package to enable the international student longer exposure to the workplace for skill development, reflection and practice.

  2. aged 15 years or older;
  3. no longer be at school;
  4. living or working in NSW; or

When you enrol in a government subsidised AUSTRALIAN GLOBAL COLLEGE course you will be required to pay the Smart and Skilled student fee, unless you qualify for a fee exemption or fee concession.

If you are not a resident of NSW or working within NSW, you have the option of paying the fee-for-service course fee.

Eligibility for Smart and Skilled – NSW government subsidised training – is available to humanitarian visa holders, and has been extended to individuals who hold a bridging visa, temporary humanitarian stay visa or temporary humanitarian concern visa commencing training on or after 1 January 2017.

How the fees are applied

When you enrol in either Fee for Service training or government subsidised training, the fee you are charged is for the whole qualification. This means you’ll know the total cost of your course before you start.

The student fees and applicable charges are required to be paid, at enrolment or by scheduled instalment date/s, either by yourself (the student enrolled), the nominated ‘third party’ on behalf of yourself (for example, your employer), or as identified within a contract for delivery of AUSTRALIAN GLOBAL COLLEGE training.

The fee you pay, the fee exemption or Smart & Skilled Fee-Free Scholarship you receive, only covers your first attempt at your course, and the first attempt at any unit of competency within your course. If you want to repeat a unit of competency you should discuss this with Administration staff as soon as possible.
