Adult Education

Adult Education or continuing education is important for knowledge and learning but is also an enjoyable life activity people can enjoy. There are universities that run continuing education workshops and courses and community colleagues in Australia also run as well as independent organisations.

Some courses have prerequisites and others do not but nearly all suppliers have information on accessing services if you are a person with a disability. To ensure access to the course and parking should a disable space be required, to large scale adaptions like large screen fonts for visual ease or podcasting of courses or online access should a person be unable to attend in person.

There are also courses on disability for clinicians, carers, families and professions.

So whether you choose to learn for fun or want to learn for education or work skills there are options for everyone to access and even in some cases grant funding to learn.

Listed below are services to help learning needs as an adult.
