Fun Evening Classes for People with Disability

Course Description

Are you interested in fun and inclusive learning opportunities?

The RISE Program of classes is intended for students who have a disability.

RISE stands for Rewarding Inclusive Social Education. Our RISE 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.

Classes are filled with fun and impart life skills such as cooking and activities such as being creative with art and craft. RISE students are well supported by qualified tutors and staff with qualifications in Disability Services.

Classes are currently held in the evenings at the following locations in 2023:

Dapto Art & Craft Classes
Bomaderry Cooking Classes 

Bomaderry Cooking Classes 

Kiama Art & Craft Classes
Bomaderry Art & Craft Classes

Shell Cove Art & Craft Classes

How to enrol in the RISE program

If you have a NDIS Plan and would like to use some of your available funds to participate in the classes, or if you are due to have a review of your NDIS Plan and would like to know how to have funding included for the RISE Program, call 4232 1050 to express your interest.

What is the cost?

Classes run for 3 hours and the College charges according to the NDIS Pricing Guide for the Funding category in the Plan. This is fully discussed when a student enrols to attend the RISE Program and establishes a Service Agreement with us.

The cost of class consumables used in class activities is the responsibility of the student and is not covered by NDIS funding. These costs are invoiced per quarter based on the number of classes attended.
