Certificate IV in Leadership and Management

Course Code BSB40520

Australia is facing a worker shortage in many key areas associated with client care.  This has created a demand for employers and team leaders to have strong management and planning skills. These include knowledge in people management, workforce planning, recruitment and a range of business skills that will help them work across the community sector, in organisations involved in community work, community development and community care services and volunteer programs, in a range of settings such as residential facilities, group homes, community agencies and government departments.

Health and Community Services Managers plan, organise, direct, control and coordinate the professional and administrative aspects of health and welfare programs and services.

Employment for this occupation rose very strongly in the past five years and in the long-term (ten years). Looking forward, employment for Health and Welfare Services Managers to November 2020 is expected to grow very strongly.

This is a medium sized suggesting that opportunities for Health and Welfare Services Managers may be limited in some regions.
