The program consists of these two qualifications:

CHC50313 - Diploma of Child, Youth and Family Intervention 

CHC40313- Certificate IV in Child, Youth and Family Intervention

This presents an excellent opportunity for eligible staff to gain a nationally recognised qualification related to child protection, family support and out-of-home-care. The Diploma is offered over 18 months. It is a pathway to the second year of a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work, Behavioural Science or Social Science at selected universities.

The 2016 Diploma program consists of 11 clusters. Each cluster includes online learning and face to face workshops running over 5 days.

Each cluster has 4-6 assessment tasks. Some tasks may need to be completed prior to attending the workshops and will form a pre-requisite for enrolment to the cluster.

Some assessment tasks will have to be completed during workshops. There will also be post-workshop assignments, which will need to be done in your workplace or in your own time.

Mentors are key to the successful completion of the course. You are advised to seek out and engage a senior officer with a tertiary qualification and sufficient experience who is willing to support your learning journey.

If you are unable to identify a mentor from your workplace, the Learning and Development Centre (LDC) will allocate a mentor to you.
