Aged care workers provide assistance, support, and direct care to aged persons in a variety of home, community, and health care settings. Our increasingly ageing population is driving demand for aged care and other individualised home and community support workers. More than 50,000 job openings are expected in the health, aged care and community services sectors over the next five years.

As a TAFE Queensland student you'll learn in simulated working environments which will develop your practical skills and prepare you for real-world situations. You'll also gain valuable experience in real workplaces under the supervision of qualified, industry-experienced professionals. Our strong partnerships mean you will learn the skills you need, while also getting to know potential future employers.

We offer a range of courses in individual and ageing support from skill sets right through to certificate IV level qualifications. Our courses will open up a range of career options in aged care, personal care, respite care, and home and community care.
