About Community Services

If you’re looking for a career where you can really make a difference, consider a role in community services. There is a vast array of jobs under this category that will provide you with a worthwhile and satisfying career path.

Community services encompass areas such as youth work, case management, community development, home and community care, children’s services, disability care and mental health.

One possible role in community services is to work as a case manager, in which you work directly with clients to coordinate the services and support they need. An online course will provide you with the necessary skills in building relationships, working with cultural diversity and advocacy to be an effective case manager. You will be trained in the relevant legal and ethical frameworks and also learn about occupational health and safety in relation to community services.
