Community Services


If you are committed to working with disadvantaged people, our community services courses will appeal to you.

If you’re looking for work that has that ‘feel good’ factor, then our courses in community services could be of interest to further develop, or begin, your career in social work.

Community workers have relevant skills and knowledge that work with the community to promote and restore social functioning and advocate on behalf of vulnerable individuals. 

You’ll learn practical skills in the areas of case work, crisis intervention, understanding theoretical models and community services systems, cultural sensitivity, risk management, community interventions, prevention strategies, advocacy and supervision skills, legal and ethical issues and working with people from diverse backgrounds. We have fully equipped practical rooms at our Preston campus that provide ‘real life’ settings to learn these skills. Our course is highly valued by employers as an entry-level qualification.

Students who complete these courses find careers in diverse fields such as:

  • Indigenous and multicultural support
  • Asylum seekers and refugee services
  • Mental health
  • Child and family services
  • Counselling
  • Emergency relief
  • Youth
  • Justice
  • Housing
  • Community development
