Description

This qualification covers people who provide person-centred care that takes into account the pastoral care needs arising from people's experiences.

Work may take place in a range of contexts such as the client's workplace, hospitals, aged care facilities, schools and community environments. Pastoral care workers work with other practitioners in developing holistic approaches to care.

This qualification prepares pastoral care workers to:

  • Provide pastoral care, advice and support
  • Identify and assess client well being and needs
  • Participate as a member of an inter-disciplinary team
  • Provide basic ethical, moral and spiritual direction and pastoral counselling with referral to appropriate professionals where appropriate
  • Provide pastoral care information.

The qualification aims to develop foundation skills involved in pastoral care work. The development of self-awareness and pastoral identity required to underpin effective work in pastoral care must be developed over time, through professionally supervised practice.

Pastoral care workers are required to be immersed in the practices of their organisation and to operate within a highly ethical and moral framework. Their role may include the ethical, moral and spiritual support of clients on a day-to-day basis.

Occupational titles  may include:

  • Human resources manager
  • Workplace chaplain
  • Pastoral care worker
