Carringbush Adult Education supports adults from culturally, religiously and linguistically diverse backgrounds to develop skills and knowledge to further their education and employment pathways.
We combine education with community development to support individuals, families and communities to improve their English language and literacy, and build their capacity to access local services, engage in community events, participate in employment programs and pursue education opportunities. We work with disadvantaged individuals and vulnerable families using strengths-based approaches to support people to address their barriers to participation and to advocate for themselves and their families.
Children’s Play and Learning Support Volunteers assist young children to develop a broad range of skills with a focus on early literacy, through play, craft, story-telling, rhymes, songs and games. Child participants are aged from infants to 5 years. Volunteers work in a team alongside qualified childcare workers.
