Current Courses 

We see ourselves as having a critical role in supporting the community to remain connected with each other during these times of social distancing and self isolation. We want to make sure that those who are  experiencing unemployment/underemployment, along with those who are feeling isolated or left behind digitally during this time, can receive the training and support they need to keep connected, planning and growing. That’s why we are excited to offer a number of free and subsidised short courses! 

All online course prices have been discounted by the College to support everyone to keep learning in this challenging time and for eligible participants, courses are either free or funded by the NSW Government. 

Courses are being offered via Zoom, we are here to help people access this and are also providing free workshops on how to use Zoom.

Please find our latest update regarding Kiama & Shoalhaven Community Colleges and Shoalhaven River College response to COVID-19 below:  

Kiama and Shoalhaven Community Colleges

Over the last several days we have been introducing a range of protective measures to limit the impact of COVID-19 and support our students in continuing their study wherever possible. We have been reviewing daily the advice given to us by the NSW Dept of Health and NSW Dept of Education.  

With these considerations in mind Kiama & Shoalhaven Community Colleges have paused all onsite training as of Friday 27th of March.  

What do you need to know about this pause?  

Our trainers and staff have been contacting all students impacted by this decision and the College has either facilitated course transfers or relaxed the refund policy for courses that have not yet commenced.  

In certain circumstances, we have been able to provide flexible course delivery options to support continued studies.  

We are still taking enquiries for all courses, and our offices are still available to call.

At this point in time, Kiama & Shoalhaven Community Colleges are open and operating with some mitigating procedures in place for the protection of our community, students and staff. As we are all aware, the situation changes rapidly, sometimes daily, and you can check back here for up-to-date information.

We are reviewing daily the advice from the following organisations:

  • Department of Health
  • NSW Health Department
  • NSW Department of Education

Decisions regarding the welfare of our students, trainers and staff will be guided by this information.

The health and wellbeing of our community is important to us, and we have implemented some precautionary measures as follows:

  • the College is being cleaned and sanitised each night
  • The College will sanitise all tables, and other touch points when setting up your room

 

When you attend your class, please follow standard hygiene practices.

  • Please don’t come to class if you are feeling unwell.  Stay at home.
  • Self-isolate for 14 days if you have been overseas recently
  • Self-isolate for 14 days if you have been in close contact with someone who has recently returned from overseas and displays flu-like symptoms
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with an elbow or tissue
  • Dispose of tissues appropriately
  • Wash hands at the beginning of class and before you leave
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitiser
  • Try and keep a social distance of 1.5m when possible

 

We understand and respect your decision if you would like to cancel or postpone your course attendance, or choose to not attend your class, due to COVID-19 concerns.  The College will facilitate course transfers as well as relax the refund policy if your course has not yet commenced to make it easier for students to manage their study should they need to self-isolate. We will also provide flexible course delivery options, if appropriate, to support your continued studies at this time. Please note that this will not be possible for all types of courses.
