About the program
Keen? Let’s get the rundown!
This program is here to help you, but we are working hard to make sure the core content is around a social time too! That’s why it’s not all about learning and training, we actually will be doing some fun activities like a scavenger hunt around Melbourne, cooking classes and some activities driven by YOU!
Understanding that exams, schoolies and Christmas are all important parts of your life, the program works around each of these for minimum disruption.
Applications for the 2018 program have now closed. Stay tuned for the 2019 program and see if let’s life has expended to your region!
The 2018 Delivery Plan included….
The program will be delivered in 2 stages. Stage 1 will be hosted at Bass Coast Adult Education Centre Wonthaggi and run between November and February. The sessions will start after exams and work around schoolies and Christmas.
Stage 2 will be in February 2019 and consist of 3 day trips to Melbourne.
There is a cost of $50 per participant, which will be returned on completion of the program. As the program is funded, it’s important that these funds are utilised for participants who can attend most sessions. That’s why we are happy to return the $50 on completion of the program!
