Your Guide to Becoming a Qualified Support Worker for NDIS Participants

Are you passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of others? Do you have a heart for supporting individuals with disabilities to live their best lives? If so, then becoming a qualified support worker for NDIS participants might just be the perfect career path for you. At Bharosa Community Services, we’re dedicated to empowering individuals with disabilities through compassionate care and support. And guess what? We’re currently looking for dedicated individuals like you to join our team! But first, let’s dive into what it takes to become a qualified support worker.

  • Gain Relevant Qualifications: 

While formal qualifications aren’t always mandatory, having a certificate or diploma in disability support, aged care, community services, or a related field can significantly boost your chances of landing a support worker role. These qualifications provide you with essential skills and knowledge to effectively support individuals with disabilities under the NDIS.

  • Develop Essential Skills: 

Alongside formal qualifications, possessing certain skills is crucial for success as a support worker. These include excellent communication and interpersonal skills, empathy, patience, problem-solving abilities, and a genuine desire to make a difference in the lives of others. Additionally, being adaptable and flexible is key, as every individual you support will have unique needs and preferences.

  • Gain Practical Experience: 

Hands-on experience is invaluable when it comes to working in the disability support sector. Consider gaining experience through volunteering, internships, or entry-level roles in healthcare or community services. This not only provides you with practical skills but also gives you a deeper understanding of the challenges and rewards of supporting individuals with disabilities.

  • Obtain Necessary Certifications: 

Depending on your location and the specific requirements of the role, you may need to obtain certain certifications or clearances to work as a support worker. This could include a valid First Aid/CPR certificate, NDIS Workers Screening Check, a Working with Children Check (WWCC), a National Police Check, or other relevant clearances mandated by your state or territory.

  • Stay Informed and Updated: 

The disability support sector is constantly changing, with new policies, regulations, and best practices emerging regularly. Stay informed and up-to-date with the latest developments by attending relevant training sessions, workshops, and conferences. This demonstrates your commitment to professional growth and ensures that you provide the highest quality support to NDIS participants.

At Bharosa Community Services, we’re committed to providing exceptional support to individuals with disabilities, and we’re on the lookout for dedicated support workers to join our team. If you’re passionate about making a difference and have the qualifications, skills, and heart for this rewarding role, we want to hear from you!
