Take the next step in your career in child welfare with this intermediate qualification. This course is perfect for people with a passion for working with vulnerable members of the community. Certificate IV in Child, Youth and Family Intervention is the preferred option for staff who do not hold a recognised qualification and need to satisfy the legislative changes to the Child Safety Framework, as it provides the most relevant skills and knowledge to the role of residential care service staff.

This qualification is the minimum requirement for people looking to work in youth and family intervention, including practice specialisations in residential and out of home care, family support and early intervention.  Workers operate under a broad supervision framework and within clearly defined organisational guidelines, service plans and position specifications.


The Certificate IV in Child, Youth and Family Intervention is made up of sixteen (16) units of competency. Ten (10) of these units are core units and six (6) are elective units.

Where appropriate, electives may be packaged to provide a qualification with a specialisation in residential and out of home care.
