Carringbush: Education and Community Programs

Carringbush Adult Education Inc. TOID 3671

Carringbush Adult Education delivers Language, Literacy, Numeracy and Employability Skills programs tailored to adult learners with diverse needs. Our programs are contextualised and have a strong focus on the development of oral communication skills, including pronunciation, as well as literacy skills for employment and participation in the wider Australian community.

We are a not-for-profit Registered Training Organisation that aims to empower Richmond and Collingwood’s most high-need adult learners, with a focus on migrant-background residents at the beginning of their education and vocational pathways.

“When I came here (Australia), I'm not talking English. For two years I can't talk. But now I improve my English a lot. I feel confident I can talk English anywhere, with anyone. And after, when I get more English, then I will get a nice job too!”

Firdous, Carringbush Student
