Ready to make a difference to a young person’s life? The Certificate IV in Youth Work gives you the skills and knowledge to support young people. You’ll graduate ready to develop and implement programs that address their social, behavioural, health, welfare, developmental and protection needs.
The course includes a mix of delivery methods, such as face-to-face class time, online work, project work and industry experience (work placement).
Students will need to successfully complete work placements, for which they will be required to hold a current Police Check and a current Working with Children Check.
Students may be required to attend other campuses from time to time for events and other course engagements.
