Positive Behaviour Support is an evidence-based approach to improving quality of life and supporting behaviour change. Due to a significant shortage of Positive Behaviour Support practitioners across Australia, well-paid employment opportunities are strong.

This introductory course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to support their application as an entry-level behaviour support practitioner through the Alternative Assessment Pathway with the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
