Certificate III in Individual Support

Miah is currently undertaking an Australian School-based Apprenticeship (ASbA) in a Certificate III Individual Support (Disability) hosted by The Woden School.

Miah is passionate about helping people and hopes her work within the disability sector can make a difference to people’s lives.

Through her ASbA, Miah has developed her non-verbal communication, as many of the students she supports are not able to communicate verbally. Earlier this year, Miah undertook an Auslan course.

Outside of her ASbA, Miah is an active member of the Indigenous Interest Group at Hawker College and played a significant role in setting up the Indigenous Resource Room at the school.
