Sydney Community College is excited to announce next term's short courses for people with disabilities, starting in July.
Courses are offered through the Inclusive Community Education Program (ICEP), a pilot program funded by the Department of Family and Community Services, Aging Disability and Home Care. ICEP is a flexible respite program that aims to give carers a break whilst providing unique recreation and social opportunities for adults with a disability.
To be eligible for a place, each student must:
- Have a disability
- Live at home with an unpaid carer (e.g. parent/guardian)
- Be aged 18-45
- Live in the local community, including LGAs of Ashfield, Botany Bay, Burwood, Canada Bay, Canterbury, City of Sydney, Leichhardt, Marrkickville, Randwick, Rockdale, Strathfield, Waverly or Woollahra.
Enrolments for next term's courses are now open. All courses are free. Experienced tutors run the classes and two support facilitators are on hand at all times.
