Six Woodville Disability Services clients recently completed a six week TAFE course.
Each day, students travelled all the way from Villawood to Campbelltown TAFE campus to attend class. Along with Woodville support staff, the students immersed themselves in a TAFE environment and completed assessments.
The course, offered by TAFE SWSi (South Western Sydney Institute) catered for the different abilities of each individual and covered the units “Using everyday technology” and “Identify and use literacy for vocational and community engagement.”
During the classes Woodville support staff observed the students talking more than they ever had before, to help one another and ask questions if they didn’t understand. For some participants who didn’t usually feel comfortable asking for help, this was a big achievement.
We are so proud of our clients who took the leap into learning in a classroom situation and completed the course. Their sense of pride was on show, with many exceeding their own expectations. Bravo!
