Meet our students

Our students identify their strengths and learning styles, enhance their skill set, and broaden their employment prospects and community participation with our help. We offer pre-vocational and vocational education and training in a range of subjects, and hope to expand our student's networks so they are empowered to contribute fully to their community.

"The Work Education course is great. I'm enjoying all my classes. In March I had a successful work experience placement at Priceline." Melissa

Work is a fundamental right for everybody – as is participation in valued social activities. We offer you classroom and offsite training, industry and community visits and practical placements, community excursions, performing and visual arts projects, film-making, hospitality and trades training. 

Your success stories – we are so proud of our students!

Alumni

Every year we host a gathering for students from the previous two years. At this event our students and staff catch up, learn where they are now, and in some cases students are linked in with new more relevant services. We love seeing everyone again so please join us.
