Foundation Skills Training has been a priority of Southern Grampians Adult Education (SGAE) since its inception more than 16 years ago, and became a “Foundation Skills Preferred Provider” in 2014 in all three domains.

These courses have been specifically designed to maximise the opportunities for adult learners with a permanent cognitive impairment/ intellectual disability to engage with learning in a supported program.

Hands-on learning focuses on improving reading, writing and numeracy skills, providing learners with the confidence, skills and knowledge to maximise their full potential and enhance their quality of life and independence to become more active members in their communities, or in a supported workplace environment.

Students will be learning under close supervision with high levels of direction. Knowledge and employability skills development is supported by a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy skills and preparatory learning. Training is delivered to make meaning from everyday life circumstances and units are prepared to focus on the individual’s development. The programs are hands-on, activity based within a fun and friendly learning environment.

Entry Requirements

A pre-training interview will be conducted to gain necessary background information on all students and to determine individuals are enrolled in the appropriate course. Entry is restricted to learners with evidence of a permanent cognitive impairment / intellectual disability.
