About the course

About the course

This course is run on behalf of a variety of Disability Service Providers and is delivered on campus or at your Disability Service Provider's location.  

Numbers and words can be confusing for people with a permanent cognitive impairment or intellectual disability. When literacy and numeracy skills are under developed, ordinary life in the community can be affected.

We are here to help! Together we can break down the barriers to education, training and employment and help participants to become more actively involved in their community!
We make learning the alphabet and numbers fun by applying them to familiar every day activities and situations. Teaching will be based on the interests and personally relevant needs of students to encourage their active involvement in class. By the end of the course, students will be able to recognise basic time, money and measurement, and use simple words and phrases to communicate their ideas and opinions.

During their time with us, students will be supported by our friendly literacy and numeracy expert who will engage them with learning strategies that are sensitive to their specific needs.

You will need to apply through your Disability Service Provider.  Tuition and materials fees are subject to partnership Training Service Agreements with individual Disability Service Providers.  Tuition fees will vary depending on the units selected. Concession rates apply.  Industry-based groups are exempt from service and amenties fees.
