Brief Overview

ICAN Learn is a social enterprise registered training organisation focusing on quality to develop the financial capability sector and thereby strengthening consumer advocacy.

Whilst our courses focus on place-based training approaches across Australia, featuring strong links with industry and workplace mentoring, we also provide an online course for those who are unable to attend training physically, in particular those living in remote locations.

Our live online delivery focuses on 1:1 support from our financial counselling teachers, group online classes, self-directed learning and an online platform for assessment completion and submission. We provide resources electronically to assist students with their studies.

The Diploma of Financial Counselling requires 220 hours of specific Learning in the Workplace. This Learning in the Workplace must be undertaken in an agency that employs qualified financial counsellors that meet National full member requirements and who can provide workplace mentoring and support whilst working alongside ICAN Learn to ensure that competencies are developing and met.

Learning in the Workplace is governed by a specific process to ensure quality and safe outcomes. ICAN Learn will provide details about this to you once you are enrolled. ICAN Learn will recommend organisations but it is incumbent on the student to seek out placement and establish the learning in the workplace relationship. ICAN Learn assesses placement proposals to ensure suitability of the placement agency and to ensure that the agency can work with ICAN Learn to meet the student assessment outcomes.

Please note: You will be required to provide certified copies of identification documents, a requirement of the Australian Skills Quality Authority [ASQA], prior to approval of enrolment.
