CHC33015

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who provide person-centred care and support to others in a community or residential setting. Individualised plans are created and enacted to ensure care services are tailored to the requirements of the individual (ageing, disability, young etc.) Workers will use discretion and judgement in determining level and type of support provided, and therefore take responsibility for their own output. Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support.
