Advanced Diploma of Community Sector Management

Victoria University (VU)

This management stream qualification covers workers who are responsible for coordination and management of smaller organisations or of branches/departments of large organisations. These people work independently and report to executive management or boards of management. They undertake a range of functions requiring the application of knowledge and skills to achieve results in line with the organisation's goals and strategic directions. This qualification also applies to managers of program areas, projects or delivery of services in the community services industry, including managing community houses and volunteer services/programs. They may work in a range of sectors such as housing, children's services, alcohol and other drugs, mental health, community care, disability and aged care. It is expected that, in addition to management electives, relevant units applicable to these specific services would be selected as electives as appropriate, particularly for smaller organisations.

Victoria University is the only university in Australia to use the block teaching model, which has been in operation throughout Sweden and parts of North America for more than four decades.

First-year and second-year students at Victoria University complete one subject every four weeks, are assessed, and then proceed to the next four-week unit. Immersion in each subject allows students to master it, rather than juggling four units at once. From 2020, all students will be taught in this way.

Victoria University is one of only six Australian universities to combine higher education and vocational and further education with its Victoria University Polytechnic, which is based on multiple university campuses. The Polytechnic creates pathways direct to the workforce or to university degrees.

VU College offers English language courses, pathway diplomas and courses for international students at its Melbourne and Sydney campuses as well as offshore with international education partners.
