The Diploma of Youth Work and Certificate IV in Alcohol and Other drugs will provides students theories, models, interventions and practical skills within the area of youth work and alcohol and other drugs.

In this course, you will develop an understanding of issues affecting disadvantaged and diverse young people, and gain the skills you'll need to work with young people and their families.

You'll also learn case management models that will assist in working collaboratively with other community and health agencies to meet client needs.

This course aims to give you practical and real world experience working with young people. In second semester, you will complete a project that will take you out of the classroom and provide you with an opportunity to work with young people, enabling you to develop and participate in running group sessions to help engage and build rapport with them. These are crucial skills for youth workers.

In your final semester, you will complete a 160 hour placement. We have a dedicated placement team who will find a placement for you.

The team will have a one on one interview with you to discover your key areas of interest and to make sure that the placement selected helps you get the most out of the experience.
