A pathway to employment or further studies

Our foundation courses provide people who are long-term unemployed, people with disabilities, disengaged youth and migrants with the training needed to enhance their employability, independent living, life skills and communication skills. These courses offer the students a pathway to further studies, employment or volunteering.
