Certificate IV in Youth Work

National Course Code: CHC40413

TAFE NSW Course Number: CHC40413-01V04

This qualification reflects the role of workers who develop and facilitate programs for young people through a range of community-based programs designed to address the social, behavioural, health, welfare, developmental and protection needs of young people.

This work may be undertaken through employment in community, government and youth sector agencies and workers will be:

  • responsible for implementing policies and guidelines of the employing organisation
  • largely self-directed with fairly autonomous decision-making capacity under the indirect supervision of a manager.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.

ENROLLING IN FIRST AID UNITS OF COMPETENCY
If you are seeking to enrol in a First Aid unit of competency you are advised that to complete the unit you must be able to perform basic life support skills, for example control bleeding and perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). If you have a disability that would prevent you from performing required basic life support skills you are advised that you will not be able to achieve the unit of competency.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Work experience provides you with¿exposure to situations and circumstances that cannot be replicated in a learning environment.

Work experience is not mandatory for this qualification; however, this is a highly practical course with your course work structured to include 120 hours of work experience.

TAFE Digital students: You are responsible for arranging your own work experience. Our SkillsTeam can offer support and guidance to assist you.

Campus-based students: TAFE NSW will arrange your work experience with a suitable industry employer.

Decisions on where you will be placed are guided through a nomination process of your preferred location and your personal circumstances.

If you have already secured paid or voluntary work with a community agency the SkillsTeam will assess its suitability for your work experience.

Work experience generally only begins once you have had significant contact with your teacher and they are satisfied that you are ready to benefit from on-the-job industry learning.
