Education & Training

Carers NT provides opportunities for carers to increase their life skills and qualifications which supports carers in their direct caring role.

Carers NT provides opportunities for carers to participate in educational and training sessions, which will enhance and add to their knowledge, understanding, skills and qualifications.

Carers NT understands that at times carers are wanting to undertake training and educational courses that may be a direct benefit to their caring role, but are unable to do so due to their caring responsibilities.

Registered Carers can contact Carers NT on 1800 242 636 or 89 444 888 to request further information on respite options and assistance that may be available to carers who are wanting to participate in training and education.
