Certificate IV in Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care Eastern College Australia
This qualification reflects the role of chaplains and/or pastoral and spiritual care workers who provide ongoing ethical, moral and spiritual support to clients using a person-centred approach.
Workers operate within the guidelines and practices of their organisation and within the professional and ethical standards of their relevant association. The development of self-awareness and identity underpin effective work in pastoral and spiritual care and are developed over time, through professionally supervised practice and mentoring.
Work may take place in a range of contexts, including schools, community outreach and local churches in a paid or volunteer capacity. Work in these roles may also require commissioning from a recognised religious institution.
