RE-SKILL

Learn the new skills that you need

NADIA'S STORY

FROM HOPELESSNESS TO ASPIRATION

Many of our clients find that in order to move forwards, they need to develop certain new skills. Through our RE-SKILL program, we provide a relaxed and encourage setting to learn and practice.

  • BASIC ADULT LIFE-SKILLS TRAINING PROGRAM ('FREEDOM ED') - clients are given the opportunity to develop the pre-requisite skills necessary for a functional lifestyle and successful employment. We introduce them to literacy, numeracy, home economics and art in a creative and non-threatening way. This one year program includes: Urban Art; Cookery Workshop; English For Everyone; Maths Made Easy and Science workshops. 
  • ONE-TO-ONE PHONICS & READING PROGRAMS - We offer individual support in learning the basics of reading, writing and phonics.
  • MOVING FORWARD SCHEME - A tailor-made program which helps clients to reach their full potential through educational trips, training, team building, self-esteem workshops, job club and voluntary employment opportunities. It aims to promote self-worth, develop motivation and aspirations and encourage independence, all of which are important factors in obtaining employment.
