Fun Evening Classes for People with a Disability
The RISE Program of classes is intended for students who have a disability.
RISE stands for Rewarding Inclusive Social Education and the classes are designed to support students living with a disability to learn skills, have fun, socialise in a recreational setting and to participate in the local community.
The RISE program incorporates our very popular ICEP (Inclusive Community Education Program) and is now open to anyone with a disability to enrol.
Classes are currently held in the evenings at the following locations:
• Dapto and Bomaderry on Mondays
• Bomaderry on Tuesdays
• Kiama and Bomaderry on Wednesdays
• Shellcove on Thursdays
Classes are a lot of fun and impart life skills such as cooking, photography and using IT. Students also engage in activities such as being creative with art and craft, music and dance, playing games, relaxation and exercise and going on social outings.
RISE students are well supported by qualified tutors and staff with qualifications in Disability Services.

What is the cost?
In the majority of cases students will be able to use funding from the Core Support Category of their NDIS Plan. The cost of attending is $60.72 for the 3 hour class. The College will negotiate a Service Agreement based on the number of classes a student wishes to commit to for the duration of their plan. Students who have not yet had their NDIS Plan approved may still be able to attend.
What about transport?
The College does not provide transport between home and the centre based classes so these costs are the responsibility of the participant.
What should I do next?
Please contact the College in the first instance by clicking on the 'Express your interest' button below. You will then be contacted by the RISE Coordinator John Kenny who will discuss the next steps.
ICEP will continue to be funded by the ADHC Division of the NSW Government during the NDIS transition period so if you are already enrolled as an ICEP student all you need to do is to continue to attend and just let the College know when you have moved on to an NDIS Plan.
If you are not already one of our ICEP students and would like to join one of our classes make sure that you let your NDIS Planner know so that it can be included in your First NDIS Plan.
