With 15 years of experience in the disability sector and two years with Nepean Industry Edge Training, trainer Carol is helping produce passionate students ready to work in disability support positions. Carol’s got countless stories to tell, which is a priceless asset because she’s discovered that her students learn greatly from relatable stories. It’s easy for them to engage with her real-life experiences. 

Carol teaches Certificate IV in Disability and Certificate IV in Leisure and Health, and suggests that students undertaking Certificate IV in Disability enrol in both courses as a Dual Certificate IV, because there is an element of leisure and health knowledge required when clients are taken for outings and activities. The relatively small class sizes are ideal too. “The fact that there is a smaller number of students means that it is a more comfortable and cohesive environment,” she said. “My students are more likely to talk, open up and contribute to the group activities. It’s an engaging and intimate atmosphere.” 

Through a mixture of theory and practical learning, assessments, videos, case studies, research projects, discussions and work placement, students become immersed in the area. As a trainer, Carol must also observe all of her students within the work environment during their placement. 

“It’s the most rewarding aspect of teaching. It’s satisfying when I go to a workplace and I observe a student and I get to see them using the theory that I’ve taught them.”   

Carol’s passionate about making sure her students are well prepared and trained with extensive background knowledge because her students’ future clients are generally quite vulnerable, with complex needs ranging from physical ailments to communication or behavioural issues.

If you would to enrol for the Certificate IV in Disability and Leisure and Health, please contact NIET on 9770 1633.
