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.

Practical sessions will be conducted in our state-of-the-art allied health facility at Frankston and Berwick, with simulated hospital rehabilitation and community environments.
A minimum of 120 hours work placement is required to complete this course which will be arranged by Chisholm Institute.
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.
A minimum of 120 hours work placement is required to complete this course which will be arranged by Chisholm Institute.

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 learning material 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. While it is expected that the course duration will remain unchanged, it may be necessary to extend the completion date if circumstances change.
