Graduate Certificate in Service Coordination and Rehabilitation
This course aims to give professionals working in a wide variety of settings
(including health, education and welfare, occupational and industrial arenas) a comprehensive introduction to rehabilitation concepts and practices. It's designed to prepare graduates from a range of health and human service delivery backgrounds to work with populations characterised by chronic illness or disability. You'll develop an approach to rehabilitation service delivery focused on client involvement, coordination of services and the maintenance of individuals in the community.
The content reflects recent developments in rehabilitation at Commonwealth and state levels, including occupational and community.based rehabilitation systems. This course provides a flexible option for students not proceeding to higher level studies to obtain a valuable qualification.
The minimum entry requirement is successful completion of an Australian Bachelor degree (or its equivalent) in a relevant field such as psychology, health, or counselling. Prior learning developed through relevant work experience or professional accreditation, where it is deemed to be at least equivalent to that obtained through a relevant Bachelor degree, may be considered. In making an offer to an applicant, the University will give consideration to a range of factors to determine whether an applicant has demonstrated the capacity to work at a graduate certificate level, including academic record, English proficiency, and/or employment experience.
NB: Meeting minimum prerequisites does not guarantee an offer of a place. Entry into all La Trobe courses is based on competitive selection and there may be limited places available.
Prospective roles for graduates include case manager, service coordinator, and rehabilitation counsellor.
