Aged and Community Services SA & NT

Aged and Community Services SA & NT has established a strategic partnership with the University of South Australia to provide a strategic leadership and management development program based on the UniSA Business School’s postgraduate award programs. 

The aim of this program is to equip industry participants with contemporary leadership, financial, change and strategy skills to address the significant challenges, both current and future, in aged and community services. The course content aligns with the Australian Aged Care Leadership Capability Framework. 

The program is designed to:

  • complement participants’ previous specialist and technical education and managerial experience;
  • assist existing and future leaders to be aware of change and challenges and to equip them to manage the opportunities;
  • enhance participants’ understanding of strategic and contemporary leadership issues. 

The program consists of four courses to achieve the Graduate Certificate of Business Administration. Courses are designed so that relevant industry issues and changes are addressed and, where possible, assignments are applicable to the work context of participants.

Course 2: Accounting for Decision Making

Course 3: Structure, People and Change

Course 4: Responsible Leadership
