Did you know that independent support workers who offer their services via Mable have free access to training modules? We created the Mable Learning Hub so that our community of independent support workers can easily access training and upskilling opportunities.
Professional development benefits the Mable community
The Mable Learning Hub provides independent support workers offering their services through Mable with free access to over 100 courses by reputable organisations. These include National Disability Services (NDS), Dementia Australia, Autism Explained, La Trobe University and Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
Providing these learning and upskilling opportunities to the support worker at no cost to themselves makes them infinitely more accessible. By helping them to continually undergo professional development without cost being a barrier, the Mable community benefits.
Below is a brief rundown of just some of the courses offered. We encourage you to have a conversation with your support workers around accessing these courses for the benefit of clients such as yourself.

So much more at the Learning Hub
The Mable Learning Hub always offers something new and interesting for independent support workers to learn and because it’s free, it’s a great way for them to add more knowledge and skills to their capabilities. Aside from courses directly related to the support they provide, either to older Australians or people who live with disability, there are many opportunities to learn more about health and safety in the workplace, human rights, COVID-safe protocols, mental health awareness and so much more.
Your support worker may already be taking courses in the Learning Hub, and if so, it’ll be interesting to have a chat about what they’ve been learning. If they haven’t used it yet, a request or suggestion from you could be all the encouragement they need.
