Community Services and Counselling

Supporting and promoting the wellbeing of communities

Community Services professionals perform an extremely important role, working on the frontline to promote the safety and wellbeing of adults, children and young people so as to build strong families and communities.

If you are a natural carer and helper, who is a strong communicator and listener a career in the Community Services may be for you.

The industry is one of the fastest growing areas for employment and this growth is forecasted to continue at even higher levels over the coming years.

There is a high probability that you will be working in your field of study within just 12 weeks from graduating. Just like 86% of our graduates last year who were employed within 3 months of graduating. (Gold Coast TAFE Destination Survey.)
