If your course has been funded by Training Services NSW under Smart and Skilled, you may be contacted by a Training Services NSW representative to discuss your experience at Western Sydney Institute.

This course provides knowledge and skills for participants who require more
extensive training in order to communicate with the Deaf at a higher level
than offered by the Certificate II in Auslan. At this level, the course teaches
participants how to give routine information in Auslan in a number of contexts,
apply the principal characteristics of Auslan signs, and describe generally
the cultural and historical trends and issues of the Deaf community.

Successful completion of this course will enable graduates who come into contact
with sign language users in their workplaces to expand their skills and enhance
their employment opportunities in roles such as:
- Teachers Aide
- Child Care Worker
- Child or Youth Residential Care Assistant
- Community Worker
- Case Manager
- Case Worker
- Youth Worker
- Aged Care Worker
- Integration Aide
- Administration Officer/Receptionist
- Nurse
