Certificate II in General Education for Adults (CGEA)

  1. About this service

    Provides an alternative education setting for disengaged or at risk youth. The program is a nationally recognised qualification which aims to improve basic literacy and numeracy skills whilst keeping participants engaged and connected to education. Our class sizes are small - no more than 15 maximum in a class, with the support of a well established and intensive Student Wellbeing program and classroom volunteers to assist with learning where necessary. Student Wellbeing is available every class day and also assists in preparation and transition into the "next step". Participants completing this program may return to school, go on to further education or employment.
