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 autism 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.
