Get Job Ready!
The requirements below are all standard requirements for working in the Disability sector. So whether you are applying for a job with CSBS or another organisation, ensuring you are ‘job ready’ will help to make you a more suitable candidate.
A Worker Orientation Module called ‘Quality, Safety and You’ will assist all NDIS workers to better support people with disability.
This module is an interactive online course that explains the obligations of workers under the NDIS Code of Conduct – from the perspective of NDIS participants. It was developed in consultation with the sector, including NDIS providers and people with a disability.
All registered NDIS providers under the NDIS Commission should include the module within their induction process for workers, and encourage existing workers to undertake the module over time, as part of their ongoing learning and to support compliance with the NDIS Code of Conduct.
It takes approximately 90 minutes to complete the four modules. Once completed, workers will receive a Certificate of Completion.
Make sure you keep this Certificate of Completion safe as you can provide it when you apply for a position.
