CHAPLAINCY & PASTORAL CARE

The Certificate IV in Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care is a dynamic, practical course designed to equip you to provide a high standard of chaplaincy support in a variety of contexts in the community. It is taught by experienced and passionate chaplains through a series of intensives.
The intensives involve you in an interactive group learning environment in which to learn, discuss and practice. These intensives are supplemented by the practicum component of working in the field in areas such as prisons, schools, hospitals and aged care. The course is a nationally accredited qualification which is endorsed by Chaplaincy Australia and the chaplaincy community.

I really liked putting into practice, during our practical hours, what we were learning in our intensives -putting it all together. The course had a very practical feel to it. I also liked that our trainers/facilitators/educators could all give examples through their own chaplaincy experiences to illustrate what we were being taught. It was good to be made to self-reflect – it’s an exercise I would usually avoid, but is beneficial – and of course necessary – for the role of a chaplain or pastoral carer. I felt part of a family within our cohort.
