Inclusion Training welcomes new students. If you are looking for high quality education services for a client or family member with a cognitive impairment, we welcome your expression of interest.

Students who attend Inclusion Training benefit from the high quality and relevant education they receive, delivered within an environment that engages, extends and supports.

Our Learning and Education services focus on the education and social development of students, so as to prepare them for further study, employment and participation in society. The programs are delivered from a range of community facilities, so as to encourage opportunities for interaction with other community members. Where possible, activities will also be undertaken through work or community placements.

With over 10 years experience as an RTO for people with cognitive impairments, our highly regarded education service incorporates the PALS model, which is based on leading edge research on best practice in education of people with cognitive impairment.

This model enables each person to learn at their own pace, supported by a trained volunteer tutor. Working in classes of a maximum of 8 people, teachers are able to devote significant time with each student, who completes his or her work alongside a paired tutor.

Inclusion Training believes that all people can learn, and support is given to people with communication impairments who have little or no speech everyday facial expression, body language, gestures and mime are also considered correct forms of communication. Except for the writing modules, assessments can be done orally.

Tutoring

Some students choose to dedicate extra time to their studies outside of the classroom and for this you may require some additional support from a volunteer tutor in your home.

Home tutors are available to support students in their literacy and numeracy studies and provide tutoring in specific subjects such as computer skills and languages. Tutors are recruited specifically to support a particular individual, therefore factors such as where people live and shared interests are also considered.
