One in five people in New Zealand reports having a long-term impairment. The range of severity of the impairment and the person’s background and beliefs means that those accessing disability support services have a diverse range of needs.

That’s why it’s important to ensure that our current disability support workforce is skilled and qualified. Investing in training now is an investment in the future health and wellbeing of New Zealand.

Careerforce offer a range of qualifications for support workers in a disability setting or working with disability support service users. These qualifications range from entry level through to advanced specialist qualifications.
