Learn the fundamentals of working in a support role within an education setting

If you are inspired to support students with additional learning needs within an early childhood, primary, secondary or adult educational setting, then a Chisholm qualification in education support is right for you.

The Certificate IV in Education Support is a nationally recognised qualification that supports strong foundational skills and knowledge relevant to the student support industry. This qualification will also equip you with specialist understandings in how to support students on the Autistic Spectrum and deepen teaching abilities in literacy and numeracy within educational programs.

This course requires 100 hours practical work placement. Chisholm can assist in organising work placement within a variety of educational settings. If you are currently working or volunteering within an educational service, this setting could be used to achieve placement requirements.

TIMETABLE:
Berwick, Dandenong and Frankston: Two days per week 9.15am – 3.15pm, plus a minimum of 100 hours work placement across course duration.
Bass Coast and Mornington Peninsula: 3 days per week Wednesday, Thursday, Friday including placement

Other part time study options and traineeships are available.


Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with theoretical components of the course online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available.

Practical skills training and assessment will be carried out in scheduled small classes to meet social distancing requirements. Practical Placement is a required component of this course and will be scheduled as soon as possible with an appropriate placement host. Given the current environment, however, this may take longer than normal and therefore, expected completion dates for the course may need to be extended to take account of deferred placement.

If you have any queries on the practical placement of a course, please contact our student information centre on 1300 244 746 or enquiries@chisholm.edu.au.
