Elective Options

"The Cert II can be used to prepare job seekers to then go on into the higher qualifications or to take up other options- like Cert III interpersonal care or Cert IV AOD or Cert IV Youth Work. Hence the request to have more electives. Also some people who do the Cert II might take a lesser role - a Health Assistant, cleaners and this qual should offer them these options. The Cert II is NOT fill of AHW units but a wide range of units from business and other areas. So to include electives for business but not other vocational areas limits the use of this qual. It would be sad to have to use the Cert II Health Assistance qual because the Cert II AHW does not fit the labour demands of the ACCHO"
