Learn how to implement leisure and health programs your clients will love

This qualification reflects the role of workers participating in the design, implementation and evaluation of leisure, health activities and programs for clients in one or more sector areas.

Throughout the course you will learn:

• How to plan, implement and monitor individual and group activities for a range of clients, including clients with complex needs.
• Best support independence and wellbeing, relationships with carers and families, as well as community participation and social inclusion.
• Lifespan development and the skills to incorporate sociological concepts into leisure and health programming.
• How to effectively provide recovery-orientated mental health services, and home and community support services.
• Communication skills to build relationships and work with a diverse range of people.

This course will offer increased career opportunities in aged care facilities, community groups or local councils completing specialised tasks and functions in relation to leisure and health as a lifestyle coordinator. The wide range of electives available within this course allows you tailor your learning to the sector you already, or hope to, work in. Taking part in leisure and health programs allows clients to address a range of psychological, social, emotional and physical needs while also having fun.
