Altura Learning has been at the forefront of aged care education for over 20 years and the latest development to their Aged Care education suite now includes VET specific video-led learning support resources for the Certificate III Individual Support (Ageing & Disability).

Designed in consultation with aged care employers and industry experts, the Certificate III Individual Support learning resources (Ageing and Disability) feature 15 units of competency designed to support and be integrated into existing teaching resources by a registered training organisation (RTO). 

The units are the highest-quality learning resources on the market to support delivery of the accreditation by a registered training organisation.

Key features:

  • Successful participants benefit from elevated learning tools to assist in their coursework for the CHC33021 – Certificate III Individual Support (Ageing and Disability), essential for long-term career progression
  • 15 units of competency, including three specialist units in ageing and disability
  • Accessible and engaging e-learning tools, including educational videos, interactive quizzes and activities
  • Coursework that is mapped to legislation, standards and qualifications for both aged care and disability sectors

One of the most exciting features is the use of video-rich scenario-based content to promote knowledge retention through active learning and learner engagement. Renee Costa, Business Development/Product Manager for the VET sector at Altura Learning, said the insightful video content allows learners to encounter real-life scenarios that often cannot be reflected in the classroom or workplace.

“The way in which these learning resources have been designed really leans into, supports and maximises learner engagement for students studying the Certificate III in Individual Support,” Ms Costa said. “The resources provide a solid foundation of knowledge and the activities and video content provides learners with examples of real-life scenarios which maximises learner engagement.”

“We absolutely feel this will engage learners from start to finish.”

The Certificate III Individual Support (Ageing and Disability), like all Altura Learning courses, is available in a SCORM (shareable content object reference model) format and has been developed using modern eLearning authoring tools. As a result, it can easily be implemented alongside existing training provider teaching resources.
