Make yourself a valuable employee with these certifications in disability care

Whether you are looking to start a new career or increase your skills for to a current employer, completing a disability course is a great move. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), gives disabled persons and their families greater access to disability services than ever before. The NDIS has created greater demand for disability care services—both in the community and residential settings—which means an increased need for workers with the qualifications necessary to provide disability care. According to the Australian Government Employment projections there is an expected increase of 249,500 jobs in the health care and social assistance industry, which is almost double that of any other industry in the Australian economy.  NDIS has approximately 3,750 unfilled vacancies (June 2012) with an additional 83,000 staff expected to be required by 2024.1 Classes at Frankston.
