Tell us about yourself


NSCP Chaplains, due to the requirements of government funding, must have appropriate qualifications. A minimum Certificate IV in Youth Work or Certificate IV in Pastoral Care and Chaplaincy (or equivalent) is required. Qualifications in teaching, social work or counselling are most likely acceptable. Your qualifications need to include 2 units on referral and mental health (CHCCS016 - Respond holistically to client issues and refer appropriately and CHCMSH001 - Work effectively in mental health) or equivalent. If not, these two units must be completed separately, or you can organise for recognition of prior learning (RPL). If you are unsure we can review your transcripts and let you know.
