  • 2. INFORMATION PAGE AUSTRALIAN QUALIFICATIONS FRAMEWORK AQF logo goes here “The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) is the national policy for regulated qualifications in Australian education and training. It incorporates the qualifications from each education and training sector into a single comprehensive national qualifications framework.” – AUSTRALIAN QUALIFICATIONS FRAMEWORK COUNCIL Community Training Australia Pty Ltd (“CTA”) is a National VET Regulated (NVR) Registered Training Organisation (RTO) approved to provide Vocational Training and Assessment services. RTO #31905. The NVR Standards Community Training Australia is approved and audited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (“ASQA”) and adheres the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011. The VET Quality Framework comprises: VET Provider Community Training Australia Pty Ltd has approval under the Higher Education Support Act 2003 to operate as an administrator of the VET FEE-HELP income contingent loan scheme. VET Provider #7002. VET FEE-HELP Community Training Australia Pty Ltd (“CTA”) is an approved VET provider under the VET FEE-HELP Assistance Scheme and eligible students can now access VET FEE-HELP. VET FEE-HELP is an income contingent loan scheme that assists eligible students to pay for all or part of their VET tuition fees when studying one or more of the eligible VET courses at CTA. Students wishing to access VET FEE-HELP assistance are invited to discuss their eligibility with the staff at the information office at any CTA campus. The Department of Industry, Innovation Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE) website contains important information about VET FEEHELP (go to www.deewr.gov.au/vetfeehelp). Students intending to access the scheme should read the VET FEE-HELP Student Information Booklet available on the CTA website. STU logo goes here STUDENT TUITION ASSURANCE Community Training Australia Pty Ltd is a corporate member of the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (“ACPET”) and who administer the Australian Student Tuition Assurance Scheme (“ASTAS”). • • • • • The Qualifications that CTA deliver are nationally recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework and carry the Nationally Recognised Training logo. “The Nationally Recognised Training (NRT) logo is a distinguishable mark of quality for promoting and certifying national vocational education and training leading to Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) qualifications or Statements of Attainment.” Standards for NVR Registered Training Organisations; Australian Qualifications Framework; Fit and Proper Person Requirements; Financial Viability Risk Assessment Requirements; and Data Provision Requirements. The Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE) formally recognised Community Training Australia Pty Ltd on “16th of November 2011 through parliamentary approval granted under the hand of the Mister for Education the Hon.” This added recognition provides with it additional protection measures for students through added financial viability requirements for the organisation, sound organisational structures, fit and proper persons requirements and tuition assurance requirements. When you sign the Request for VET FEE-HELP Assistance Form, you declare that you have read this booklet and that you are aware of your obligations under VET FEE-HELP. • • • Requesting VET FEE-HELP Assistance If you determine that you are eligible for VET FEEHELP assistance, you should obtain a Request for VET FEE-HELP Assistance Form from the CTA Student Administration department or by contacting the representative from a CTA campus. You must complete and sign the Request for VET FEE-HELP Assistance Form and return it to student administration on or before the first day of study (Start of Study). • When submitting a ‘Request for FEE-HELP Assistance’ Form, please include your Tax File Number and attach a certified copy of one of the following forms for identification: “ASTAS ensures that any Australian student displaced from a course, due to a member’s inability to continue the course, is relocated efficiently and with minimal disruption to a comparable course with another member or approved provider.” Eligible members: • must be a member of ACPET; • must deliver approved programs leading to an accredited award; • must not have been refused coverage, or had specific courses refused coverage, in the Scheme or a similar Scheme; and • must comply with AQF Standards, as applicable. WELCOME t o C o m m u n i t y Tr a i n i n g A u s t r a l i a . Transforming Hearts and Minds At Community Training Australia we not only train people in community services and people management skills but we provide those services ourselves in local communities and overseas, so we know a lot about what we are training. All our trainers have vast experience in the ‘helping professions’ and can not only give you the theory but also the understanding of what it’s like to work on the ground. A career in helping others, whether it be through counselling, case management, youth work, drug and alcohol work, child care, dispute resolution or management, will not only provide you with amazing personal fulfilment and life opportunities but it will make a world of difference in the lives of others. If you find people come to you for support, you may have that special combination of a ‘big heart’ and a ‘clear mind’ that will make you a great community service worker or manager. You may want to share our mission of transforming hearts and minds in your local community. Gain your qualification by studying with an organisation committed to making a difference. Study with CTA. Australian Passport; Australian Birth certificate; Australian Citizenship certificate; Letter from ABSTUDY that you are ABSTUDY current, or Proof of Aboriginality; or Permanent Humanitarian Visa. To obtain a Tax File Number (TFN), you will need to complete a Tax File Number application or enquiry for an individual form available from the Tax Office website at www.ato.gov.au. If you do not have a TFN allocated to you prior to the closing date, you should obtain a Certificate of Application for a Tax File Number from a Tax Office shopfront and provide to student administration as evidence that you have applied for a TFN. Failure to supply a TFN or Certificate of application for a tax file number by the closing date will mean that you will not be able to apply for VET FEE-HELP. Becoming a corporate member of ACPET has been a welcome step that we have taken as an organisation, and one that adds to our commitment to students. Belonging to a highly professional network of private providers and consultants, both VET and higher education, gives students further assurance that our delivery of education services is of a very high standard. And the added measure of belonging to a Tuition Assurance Scheme means that training delivery cannot be put in jeopardy for students, where a provider cannot meet training expectations due to unforseen events. What this means for you, is that your financial investment in your education is assured! ENTRY INTO PROGRAMS Study in the Vocational Education and Training sector is anything but dull. It is about real learning for the world of work rather than a long theoretical treatment of the subject matter. To begin a program of study it is important that we make sure you are eligible and also able to have a real chance of achieving your goals. In some cases we may suggest a higher level program for you or a lower level program for you, dependent on what we have available and what your unique learning needs are. CONTENTS Information Welcome to CTA Testimonials Campus Sites Distance Education Course Fees and Charges Our Programs Diploma of Counselling Diploma of Community Services (Case Management) Diploma of Community Services (Alcohol, Other Drugs and Mental Health). Diploma of Youth WorkHeader Diploma of Childcare (Double Diploma) Where to find... Prerequisites and Support In some courses it is important for applying students to complete language, literacy and numeracy and even computer literacy assessments. This is merely a way for us to see how we can help you better. This is a confidential assessment and is designed to ensure that you will not be disadvantaged. 2 3
  • 3. ABOUT CTA TESTIMONIALS WHY WE DO THIS CTA is a family company. Toni Mehigan our Director is committed to the wellbeing of families. As a mother of five and grandmother as well, Toni ensures our culture counts for our students who often balance many needs at once. We have students who work and study; look after children and study; care for sick relatives and study; move house and locations and study; cope with losses and crises yet still gain their qualification. Life naturally happens. Your needs while studying and your family are important to us. If you have an illness or a family member is in crisis we have flexible alternatives that can ensure you are able to complete your course and meet your life goals. FLEXIBLE Whether you want to launch from Diploma courses to University or go straight into the workforce or just gain skills for what you are doing right now, our programs give you maximum flexibility. BENEFITS FOR OUR STUDENTS Gain up to 18 months credit to uni from our 8-12 month fast-track courses. Ask us how. Your choice of study mode for your life needs including: • • • • • Distance education Recognised prior learning (assessment only pathway) Mixed mode (cross between distance education and face-toface with reduced class time), Rural residential (live-in with food, travel, accommodation provided as part of the course fee), Integrated placement programs with training overseas or placements in Australia which will expand your horizons, change your life and outlook and make your resume look amazing. Study with like-minded students who also want to help other people. Join our Facebook study group and get help from other students and our tutors. Talk to our Skype tutors in the comfort of your own home whatever mode of study you choose. On-line learning site with all videos, power points, readings and assessments so that you can go over things as many times as you need to. The CTA team are committed to helping you reach your goals and help you clarify them as well. Read on to find out more about our courses and find the right one to suit you. 4 FAST Our students have an advantage as they are gaining their qualifications through fast track study. We don’t muck around! Our 8 month programs equate to 18 months of university study. CTA courses provide ‘intensive’ training. This is not ‘short cut’ training however. Intensive fast- track study or ‘emersion learning’ has been found to work powerfully in terms of consolidating knowledge and skills. So while you may finish studies faster than others, you will feel confident to take your new learning to the people who need it. FUN Our fun and interactive learning environment is the reason that many people just can’t get enough and come back for more. In fact 1/3 of our students enrol in another course because they got so much out of their experience. They enjoyed the program and didn’t want to leave. At CTA we believe fun is a powerful ingredient in learning. When you are having fun, you relax, and you can concentrate and absorb information. Too much stress is actually a hindrance to study. The learning activities you are engaged in should make you smile. FRIENDLY Friendly is what we want to be. Learning institutions can be formal and impersonal. Our staff will make you feel like you are visiting your good friends and the tone that we set in our facilities is designed to give you that homey feeling. Brewing coffee, bright light surroundings, comfy lounges, music, mini-tramps for quick energy boosts and delicious food are some of the ways we make you feel like you are at home with us. Distance Education students likewise meet with our Skype and email tutors and build a real relationship. Our graduate outcomes for Distance Education outshine the national average because of our ‘care factor’. Distance Education is being taken up by more and more people because of the way it can flexibly fit with our busy lives. Most of us find that without human connection distance learning can be a grind. At CTA however, our Facebook study page for our distance students and our face-to-face Skype appointments and role play practices connect you personally. 5

  • 7. COURSE FEES AND CHARGES CTA is pleased to let students know that we have VET FEE HELP available to cover all fees and charges. VET FEE HELP is a Commonwealth Government Loan Scheme available to Australian citizens and Permanent Humanitarian Visa individuals. This scheme allows you to study without any costs up front and payment is taken out of your taxable income ONLY when you start to earn over $51,000 per annum at 4% of your income. This opens the door to people to study without the pressure of finding the money. This covers fees for all study modes including Rural Residential study and Integrated Placement study. If you have a critical situation occur however though your study we can: OUR COURSES Need this section to be completed. A. Extend your close of study to provide you with additional time to complete your chosen Course. B. Withdraw you and enrol you into another intake for the course. C. Allow you to catch up with another training group. Our Course Advisory Team are also able to discuss this with you in detail. D. In some cases where students are NOT able to continue study due to a death or crisis that makes study impossible you may apply for a re-crediting of the course fees. This facility for students is at the discretion of Community Training Australia, and will require medical and other documentation in order to substantiate the claim. VET FEE HELP has a ‘try before you buy’ facility where students are NOT charged until after CENSUS DATE for the program which is 20% of the way through the program. Course fees cover all text books, course materials, travel, accommodation and food for the mode of study that you enrol into. In other words you don’t have to be well off to study. Please check on our website for the census date for the program that you choose to enrol into. Many students realise that the investment in education is an investment for higher income and greater personal satisfaction. Please be assured that Community Training Australia is committed to excellence and we aim to provide the best possible education to our students. Please refer to our VET FEE HELP terms and conditions and Government publication for 2014. More information is available on our website. You have access to all your study materials prior to census so that you can decide if the course is right for you. It is a no obligation system that allows you to ‘try on’ a course. If you do enrol and decide to withdraw before census please fill out our on-line withdrawal form. (do we have an online withdrawal form yet, if not will it be ready by 2014?) This will need to be filled in to action a withdrawal. After census date is TOO late as the information for your enrolment is automatically sent to the Australian Tax Office. 12 Students may also decide of course to pay upfront for course fees if they so choose and not use VET FEE HELP to cover course fees. 13
  • 8. Diploma of Counselling • RURAL RESIDENTIAL: CHC51712 Diploma of Counselling You can study ‘rural residential’ meaning that you can live in for your study usually one week at a time. Your travel, accommodation and food is paid for as well as all course materials. You usually arrive on a Sunday night at the venue to settle in and leave the following Saturday morning. Training is intensive but rewarding. 8 months duration This program is our signature course. We have built into the study a great deal of extra helpful information which we believe will help you do a good job of supporting others in their personal healing and life direction. In other words we cover the curriculum but we add more value. • INTEGRATED PLACEMENT PROGRAM: You can study parts of this course overseas. We have two placements available currently for the Counselling program. These placements are covered through course fees so there is no upfront cost to attend. There may be limited places however and a suitability interview is required Practical therapies that you will learn include: Decision making models, Grief and Loss therapeutic conversations, Suicide Intervention, Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Sandy Tray Therapy, Art and Play Therapy, Visual Therapies for cross cultural work and children’s work, Behaviour Therapy, Energy therapies, Integrative therapies and many more. You will practice these with other students or with your skype tutor. It is important for counsellors to ‘feel’ what it is like to be counselled so be prepared for a good emotional workout in this course! ENTRY REQUIREMENTS? To enter the Diploma of Counselling you will need to have had some work experience showing that you have the necessary skills to handle study at this level and the personal maturity to become a counsellor. Community Training Australia is committed to providing quality education to all students. Upon enrolment you will be required to complete an entry questionnaire which will help us gather the evidence of your suitability to study the program. WHAT CAN YOU DO AFTER YOU FINISH THE COURSE in terms of FURTHER STUDY? • You can continue with CTA and do other courses including the Graduate Diploma of Relationship Counselling where you will learn more about Relationship work including DV and Child and Adolescent Counselling, and how to Supervise and Mentor others in the field of counselling. • You can go on to university. Many universities will provide 12 months credit to Social Work or Psychology with a Diploma of Counselling. CTA has a credit arrangement however with Charles Sturt University providing 18 months credit to their Bachelor of Social Science Social Welfare which means that you only have to do another 18 months by distance education (with no attendance required at the main CSU campus). You can then go on to do a Masters in Social Science or you might like to do a Social Work degree. • You may like to enrol in other studies but have a good background in counselling to help you understand and help people in whatever field you want to go into. For example counselling skills are a great help for Human Resource Management in any business environment. HOW YOU CAN STUDY THE COURSE which includes a health check. Prayer Counselling WHO SHOULD BECOME A COUNSELLOR? • You will need a thirst to find out why people do what they do and how they tick. • You will need to be a careful listener. • You will need patience and openness to people with different values to you. • You will need to have a passion for emotional healing. • You will want to have a commitment to family relationships. • You will want to see people live fulfilling lives and have the personal tools to create happiness in their own lives and the lives of their children and their community. • Travel overseas to Israel on a 2 week study tour where you will learn prayer counselling in an amazing setting, visiting the trauma centre in Jerusalem and visiting a range of amazing places and meet some people that will change your life. Bring your faith to life with an experience not to be missed. (Tour information available on separate brochure) You will need to have good literacy levels so that you can carefully record counselling sessions and meet organisational standards. Trauma Therapies for Children Work in Cambodia with one of two Children’s orphanages for 3 weeks and use your skills in making a difference for displaced children who have lost parents through being kidnapped over the Thai border, used as sex slaves, abandoned or orphaned. Work with ‘school on a mat’ a program sponsored by CTA where children with no school opportunities are visited weekly in villages and provided with basic life education skills and help them get ready for school and enthused about the possibility. Help try to unify families separated through poverty and trauma. A trained interpreter will be available to support you as well as the staff at either Homeland NGO or Hope for Cambodian Children—Children’s home. (Power point with pictures available) • MIXED MODE: WHAT KIND OF JOBS CAN YOU GET? • • • You can work in counselling in a range of welfare organisations including women’s centres, Indigenous services, Multicultural services, youth services, employment services, disability services, aged care, telephone counselling, church based counselling, gambling support, trauma therapies, alcohol and other drugs and mental health work to name a few. You can work in private practice. Our elective in Life Coaching and Integrative Therapies is strongly suggested. Many people will pay to see a life coach but may not go to see a counsellor due to stigma, particularly men. You can work for government services in foster care, child safety (in some states), corrective services, and a number of client contact services that require counselling skills. You can study ‘mixed mode’ which means that you can do a mix of face to face training either in block mode (one whole week at a time) once a month generally or 2 days a week or evenings together with home study via on-line support. This means that you don’t have to spend so much time in the classroom but enough to inspire and help you achieve your qualification. • DISTANCE: You can study distance education—meaning you don’t have to attend any face to face classes at all or you can ‘drop in’ on some face to face training in order to make some contact. • RPL/CT: Recognised Prior Learning. Some people have a great deal of experience in the field already and feel they have enough knowledge and evidence to gain a qualification through RPL. CTA has an assessment only pathway where you can simply complete assessment booklets and provide workplace reports to cover the practical parts of the assessment for the course. If you feel this is you please talk to one of our staff before enrolling so that we can support you. Alternatively if you have a unit of competency from another course which matches any of those within this program we provide you with Credit Transfer (CT). What this means is that you do not have to do this part of the program again. If the unit of competency is in a ‘stand alone’ module you will not have to pay for this unit of competency you will also be able to have financial credit for this unit. Unfortunately no financial credit is available when units are combined into a module. 14 15

STUDENT SUPPORT SPECIAL NEEDS SUPPORT Students with special needs should let their local campus know these needs prior to starting the course. Disability should not mean that study is not accessible to you. CTA is committed to the principles of access and equity and will take your particular needs seriously and attempt with your help to make your time of study productive and accessible for you so that there is equity between students. Disability of course comes in many forms, some disabilities are obvious like individuals requiring wheelchairs or experiencing blindness. Others like bipolar disorder, partial deafness, degenerated spines, or clinical depression are less obvious. You will not need to provide doctors certificates to prove a special need, simply let your campus know what you think you may need with respect to assistance and they will do their best. If you are being accommodated through our travel department however you will need a Doctor’s Certificate for special consideration for special room requests. If you are participating in one of our counselling courses, discussion about particular issues may bring up strong emotion you, for example in grief and loss. Sometimes people think that if they have a disability in the area of mental health that this will disqualify them from participating in the course. You will need to talk about this with your Trainer or with our General Manager if you feel this is the case for you. If you have a condition that is being well managed there is no reason why you should not be able to participate and graduate being well able to help others. After all, you know a lot about this area from personal experience! LANGUAGE LITERACY & NUMERACY In your induction pack you may find a Language, Literacy and Numeracy Assessment or a Pre-enrolment Questionnaire which we provide for students to ensure that we are able to support them adequately through the course. This assessment does not require 100% perfect answers, however it will alert us to students with any literacy needs. If you know you have support needs before you start a course, just talk to one of our Course Co-ordinators about your needs and a Trainer can give you a call to discuss the course requirements. COMPETENCY BASED EDUCATION All programs delivered by Community Training Australia Pty Ltd. are assessed under the principals of Competency Based Training. The aim of Competency Based Training is to assess the student’s ability to undertake the activities in each unit rather than sit an exam that has a specific “pass mark”. Your Trainer will assess your ability (or “competency”) to carry out the activities in each unit of your course. In the case where a student has specific learning needs, then assessment may be modified accordingly to determine competency. Competencies are normally expressed in terms of a unit competency. Competencies include the knowledge and skills that are required for you to participate in workplace activities. When you are being assessed on these activities, you will be required to perform them to the level required in the workplace. Other special needs may include recent bereavement, loss of income for a partner, child in crisis, breastfeeding, child with a disability, marital discord, illness or parent needing care etc. Our lives go on with many challenges right through study periods and so if an event occurs which puts a large stress on you through your study this would constitute a ‘special need’. Your Trainer will try to find ways to work around this time for you and make allowances so that you can complete your studies. 36 37
