Learning and Giving Back

Wanting a career change, Ken enrolled in the Certificate III in Individual Support Disability with Atwea College in 2021. This course prepared him to work with the disabled, covering topics such as the legal and ethical implications when working, the human body, access and inclusion for the participant, family and carers, First Aid, CPR and Work Health and Safety procedures.


Ken currently runs his own electrical business; however, the physical side of the job is becoming more difficult. The opportunity to help someone improve their quality of life appealed to him.

Ken had four lessons in the classroom before COVID hit and forced him to resume his studies with Atwea online through Canvas and Zoom.
