Further Learning

G8Way can help you identify opportunities to undertake additional training, be recognised for the skills and knowledge you have gained working in the disability sector and develop your career.


The nationally recognised qualifications for working in the disability sector are:

Certificate III in Individual Support (CHC33015)

This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason.

Certificate IV in Disability (CHC43115)

This qualification reflects the role of workers in a range of community settings and clients’ homes, who provide training and support in a manner that empowers people with disabilities to achieve greater levels of independence, self-reliance, community participation and wellbeing. Workers promote a person-centred approach, work without direct supervision and may be required to supervise and/or coordinate a small team.

Undertaking training for a national qualification can be done in several ways such as face to face lessons, online or distance learning, recognition of prior learning, traineeship pathway or a combination of these. Choosing a training provider, the appropriate qualification and mode of learning to suit your needs is something you will need to consider. A complete list of registered training organisations who provide training and recognition of prior learning for these qualifications can be found at
