Reading, Writing, Maths & Job Skills
If you or someone you know needs support with essential literacy skills for general living and work, we offer adult courses in a caring and supportive environment.
At the College, we are committed to a more equal society, accessible learning options, support of the individual, a community focus and professionalism. Figures from the OECD’s PIAAC survey show that 44% of Australian adults don’t have the literacy skills they need to cope with the demands of everyday life and that 1 in 30 Australians have literacy levels making them vulnerable to unemployment. It takes courage to seek assistance with literacy.
We have a range of programs to suit your individual needs with full qualifications or individual accredited units (skill sets) in:
• FSK10119 Certificate I in Access to Vocational Pathways
• FSK10219 Certificate I in Skills for Vocational Pathways
• FSK20119 Certificate II in Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways
Our classes are small, comfortable and encouraging. Each student is supported to achieve their personal goal, whether that is to improve reading, writing, maths or job skills for employment, to read the TV guide or newspaper, or to become the secretary of a local club. If you know someone that could benefit from one of our Reading, Writing, Maths & Job Skills classes, please encourage them to call or visit our friendly team.

“Before I came to the College I could read very little and as a mature adult this made me feel very self conscious. After just one year my reading has improved so that I am now able to do things like read the TV Guide and find names in my mobile phone. These may be basic things for many people but they are big things for me. It is never too late to start learning.”
