Requirements
– Police checks
Industry standards state that all employees must have regular police checks done. You will need to present your current Police Check Certificate when you begin Vocational Placement and when you begin employment. Most employers now will only accept a Police Check if it was issued within the last 3 months. We will submit the Police Check for you as a part of your Certificate III course.

– QLD Blue Card
The majority of employers will require you to present a QLD Blue Card before they agree to Host you for Vocational Placement. We will submit the application on your behalf.

Vocational Placement
In order to complete the Certificate III in Individual Support you will need to undertake 120 hours of
Vocational Placement or Industry Employment. This gives you the opportunity to put the theory into practice and experience what a career in Community Services actually looks like.

The Care College team are constantly working with great Community Sector Employers to seek out opportunities for either employment or unpaid Vocational Placement for our students.

We provide a matching service for students, to link you with employers looking for great people. This is your chance to SHINE, show employers how professional you are, and kick start your career.
