A lot of the course ties into psychology, and would be a good foundation to springboard into anything related to community services, psychology or even sociology. Ultimately I chose to go a different career path, but learnt a lot and had a great experience competing this course. The teachers were great and very resourceful.

The course would be much better if it offered placement or on the job training. There is only so much to learn by doing written assessments

The course was great. Very informative. The teachers were also a great help and always got in touch if they noticed you were falling behind. Recommend to anyone looking at studying youth work!

Excellent teachers and staff but not enough support is given with finding student placements. Needs a better system or program to ensure students can complete the compulsory workplacement components required. Particularly for such an in need industry like social work

The teachers had so much experience and added their story to different units, it made me enjoy it more and made me have more of an understanding of what to expect in the community sector. The negative would be the support of getting employment, I was put with police so there was no chance of getting a job out of it though I did get experience.

It was a very engaging and fun experience. I was nervous about studying after having been out of school for about 8 years but it was very easy and informative and all the teachers were super friendly and helpful.
