Cambridge International College Australia offers the Diploma of Youth Work

Diploma of Youth Work CRICOS Code 058299G (Melbourne)

Description of the Qualification

The Diploma of Youth Work is designed to prepare trainees to work at a professional level in the human services industry, specifically the Youth Services field. This involves working with teenagers in areas such as community organisations, traditional community church organisations, self help organisations, local government and statutory services. During the course trainees will be taught to develop an understanding of Indigenous culture and history, ethnic cultures, community cultures and to work with local communities in the provision of specific youth services.

The course is offered as an addition to the Diploma of Community Welfare Work with a minimum number of subjects to complete due to credits from the Diploma of Community Welfare Work. On successful completion of this program trainees will be qualified to apply for a position as a case manager, early intervention coordinator, program manager, community worker, youth worker and juvenile justice worker.


Trainees who wish to complement their Diploma of Community Welfare Work and increase their employment options have the opportunity to undertake the Diploma of Youth Work. The course includes a number of the same curriculum units as studied in the Diploma of Community Welfare Work; therefore trainees would only have to study for a further 2, nine week terms, (18 weeks total) to complete the Diploma of Youth Work. The study mode is full time. Trainees have the option to study in a daytime or evening schedule subject to availability.
