Course Description

This course supports learners with a permanent cognitive and/or intellectual disability to become active participants in the community.

The course assists learners to develop life skills and supports self-development so that they can explore suitable future options such as employment, further study or community participation.

At SGAE, our Certificate I in Transition Education is based on the concept of Garden to Plate, with a focus on real-life activities of preparing and cooking meals. Participants will be involved in many activities including growing vegetables, shopping, budgeting and reading labels. The course has been tailored to explore and address personal health, the effect of healthy eating and meal preparation in a weekly practical cooking class. There are added social benefits for participants coming together as a group to plan, prepare, cook and share a meal together in a supportive and caring environment.
