Make a difference in someone's life and become an individual support worker.

Courses run at our Werribee and Geelong campuses. Your studies can also be undertaken in the workplace as a fully supported trainee, so you can earn while you learn.

Individual support now has two streams, disability and ageing. You can choose to do either stream or both! So if you are looking for a rewarding career with great job and progression opportunities, a healthcare career is the right choice. 

There are many ways to support clients, from working in residential facilities to working with people in their own homes. Job flexibility and rewarding experiences make Individual Support an excellent career choice.

A career in aged care can offer you:

  • A rewarding and fulfilling career
  • Excellent prospects for your future career
  • Job variety — no two days are ever the same
  • The satisfaction that you're making a difference
  • Meeting new people, making new friendships
  • Being part of a care-focused team.

You also have the opportunity to continue your studies with Leisure and Health, giving you the skills to develop and implement programs for ageing and special needs clients.

Student story

Image of Kath Carmody and client, an Aged Care student

“I graduated as an Individual support worker from The Gordon. Teachers here are knowledgeable and have created an environment where everyone is supported and welcomed irrespective of your background, which was very important for me personally being an international student.

I have successfully landed a job as a PCA at MACS (Multicultural Aged Care Facility), which is a highly respected aged care facility in the Geelong region.

I would definitely recommend The Gordon as the learning environment is conducive to developing the skills required for the profession, you’re encouraged to be your best, they were friendly, helpful and approachable and the teaching system was flexible and well- organised.” 

Megha Prakash, Certificate III in Individual Support
