Diploma of Community Services

Changes in disability service demand for person-centred practice, requiring practitioners in the disability field to be fully trained and equipped to deliver person-centred services.

The Diploma of Community Services has been customised by CDS to facilitate learners’ development and growth in person-centred practice for the disability and aged sectors both within Australia and internationally.   

Students can do the entire course or just selected subjects.
