CHC50413 – Diploma of Youth Work – Student Residential Care
This is the current release of the Diploma of Youth Work that has been specifically developed for people who are working in the student boarding industry, in boarding schools, or boarding residences.
It forms a career path for boarding professionals. The Certificate IV is a Pre-requisite and must be completed before commencing this unit.
1. Combo class – mix of on line, distance and workshop
- Commence working on one unit each week:
- Choose how you learn; written notes, webinar or video.
- Complete the first assessment by each Friday.
- A workshop and practical assessments to complete.
- Phone and Email support.
2. Face to Face workshop
Is available with trainers in your residence over five days. Some assessments must be completed before and after the training at your own
It is most effective with a ‘face to face’ component because of the interaction and dialogue between people in the group and with the trainers, who are able to make the training very relevant to the local context.
The course has been designed for boarding staff that are currently working in the student boarding industry, or who are able to carry out work experience in a boarding residence. Typically, students are enrolled about 12 to 14 weeks before the ‘face to face’ training workshop. Students receive their training material and are required to carry out reading and assessments each week over that 12 to 14-week period. The two trainers then deliver the ‘face to face’ component of the training, and there will be practical assessments to complete after the training.
The trainee will need to have a Head of Boarding/Residence Manager who is prepared to review their practical work skills, as a ‘third party assessment’. This may be carried out as a workplace review or performance management process after the face-to- face training week. Where the trainee is experienced and proficient in these skills, the Head of Boarding/Residence Manager may sign off on the skills immediately.
The total individual cost of the training is from $1650 to $1950, depending on the number of trainees involved.
The total individual cost of the online training is $1650.
