Coffs Coast Community College is a
not-for-profit Registered Training Organisation delivering Nationally Recognised Training and leisure programmes to residents of the Coffs Harbour region in NSW since 1995. Hosted by the College, Allegra School Coffs Harbour provides secondary education to students in Years 9 and 10 who require specialised assistance in a safe and inclusive environment.
We offer a range of accredited vocational education and training (VET) qualifications and modules in areas such as:
- Individual Support (specialising in Aged Care, Disability, Lifestyle and Leisure)
- Community Services
- First Aid
- Foundation Skills
- Information, Digital Media, and Technology
You can view courses on the College’s Scope of Registration at: https://training.gov.au/Organisation/Details/90834#
Our Leisure and Lifestyle programmes in areas such as arts, health, languages and digital media offer members of the community opportunities to learn new skills, meet new people and try something different. Affordable technology training for seniors is also offered in group workshops to assist in up-skilling seniors in the use of mobile devices and online services.
Specific programmes are available providing support to disadvantaged groups such as refugees and students with language and literacy barriers, as well as individual tuition, traineeships, and customised vocational training and non-accredited training.
We pride ourselves on the quality of adult education and training courses which we deliver, and are recognised locally as a quality provider for Individual Support (Aged Care) training in particular. The College has its own dedicated aged care clinical skills room, which enables more comprehensive skills training, especially in manual handling. This improves students’ work readiness and the quality of their work experience overall. Our graduates are well regarded and a high proportion of our aged care graduates gain employment during or after their work placement.
Coffs Coast Community College is a member of Cooperative Learning Ltd, which is part of a much larger network of Community Colleges across NSW and Victoria, and through such collaboration, has access to a more extensive and diverse range of additional vocational and accredited training programmes, other skills and resources. This usually means our training can be more flexible, more responsive and often operate with smaller class sizes than larger training providers. The College is also a member of Community Colleges Australia. For more information visit: httpsss://cca.edu.au/
