Kiama and Shoalhaven Community College 

The College is carefully planning for the return of onsite training in accordance with the Australian Government’s 3-step framework for a COVID-19 safe workplace and premise. We are following the advice given to us by the NSW Dept. of Health and NSW Dept. of Education. 

We are progressively implementing a phased return to face-to-face classes prioritising the welfare of our students, community and staff. Please check back here for up-to-date information. In the meantime, we have developed a range of free and subsidised online courses for our community.  

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.

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.
