Learn the basics 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 settings, 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 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

The Certificate IV in Education Support is available in 2019 through day or evening classes, traineeships and mixed mode delivery at Berwick, Dandenong, Frankston, Bass Coast and Mornington Peninsula locations. Location and mode availability is subject to course demand.
