Cootharinga North Queensland’s learning and social skills program, Skills and Transition, is focused on participants developing skills to live independently, prepare for transition to employment, further study, volunteering or connecting with community groups. Skills and Transition started in Townsville in 2016 and has since expanded to Mount Isa and Cairns.
Skills and Transition provides you with the choice of what courses you would like to participate in and choose the skills you would like to learn.
There is a wide range of courses offered which are held in a variety of learning environments. Some courses are instructed by our skilled Support Workers, whilst others are conducted in partnership with other organisations. At the end of the course, participants receive a certificate of attendance and feedback on progress.
