"This was the strategy we took in NT when Night Patrol was first expanded we delivered the Cert II in many communities and Darwin. In 2010 I did a review fro AG Department and the first recommendation was "That the accepted qualification for night patrol staff across the Northern Territory is CHC20108 Certificate II in Community Services Work" It then recommended a pathway to the Certificate III. The accredited course introduced by the NT ignored this and went down the correctional services/security path which was a mistake. As an RTO we refused to deliver the new course as we felt so strongly about it, it cost us work and money but in good conscience could not deliver those units you highlighted elsewhere. "

"In July 2015, RASAC commenced delivery of Community Patrol services on the APY Lands. In partnership with TAFE SA, the Certificate II in Community Services (CHC22015) was chosen as the most appropriate qualification for our Community Patrollers to complete, based on the learning needs of the patrollers, while also supporting RASAC’s contractual and operational needs. RASAC is currently developing a Certificate III qualification for Community Safety Patrol Team Leaders who have completed the Certificate II. CORE UNITS - Certificate II CHCCOM001 Provide first point of contact CHCCOM005 Communicate and work in health or community services CHCDIV001 Work with diverse people HLTWHS001 Participate in workplace health and safety BSBWOR202 Organise and complete daily work activities ELECTIVES - Certificate II CHCDIV002 Promote Aboriginal/or Torres Strait Islander cultural safety BSBWOR201 Manage personal stress in the workplace FSKWTG003 Write short and simple workplace information FSKOCM002 Engage in basic spoken exchanges at work CORE UNITS - Certificate III HLTWHS006 Manage personal stressors in the work environment HLTWHS002 Follow safe work practices for direct client care CHCCOM005 Communicate and work in health or community services CHCCCS016 Respond to client needs CHCDIV001 Work with diverse people ELECTIVES Certificate III BSBWOR301 Organise personal work priorities and development CHCPRT001 Identify and respond to children and young people CHCLEG001 Work legally and ethically CHCCOM002 Use communication to build relationships CHCDIV002 Promote Aboriginal/or Torres Strait Islander cultural safety CHCCCS009 Facilitate responsible behaviour HLTAID003 Provide first aid RASAC suggests that the Core Units for this Certificate III qualification could be used for the proposed new Certificate III Community Safety Patrol qualification.

"RASAC supports this approach as it enables workers to undertake this qualification if they have the required skills, knowledge to undertake the AQF Level 3 training. For RASAC Community Patrollers, our learning pathway includes completion of Certificate II in Community Services as this qualification is often more appropriate for our workers to ensure they have the basic factual, technical and procedural knowledge of a defined area of work and learning’’ of the AQF level 2 qualification. Working with TAFE SA we have selected relevant units of competency for the Certificate II qualification which ensure that Patrollers have the required knowledge of their role when they commence as new patrollers. Consideration of a Certificate II level Qualification for new patrollers who are not yet ready to undertake Certificate II level qualification is requested to be considered. "

Education Support Draft 2 Validation

Feedback closed 09.09.2019

The Education Support Draft 2 Qualifications and Units of Competency are now available for public consultation. These Training Package Products have been updated based on feedback received during the Draft 1 consultation period from November 2017-March 2018, as well as throughout the current consultation period for the Draft 2 Early Childhood Education and Care and School Age Care material.

The Draft 2 Education Support qualifications and units of competency have been complex due to a number of  factors including 

  • Clarification of the job roles
  • The separation of the early childhood (ECE) units from the existing qualifications
  • Concerns expressed in relation to the structure and content of the Draft 1 Education Support (EDS) qualifications, and validated with data provided by a key stakeholder 

We encourage those people who are active in the Education Support sector to review the Draft 2 Material and provide comment and feedback to guide the final draft. 

To access the Draft 2 Validation Guide, which includes a summary mapping table, please scroll to the bottom of this page where the Validation Guide can be downloaded.
