Celebrating over 30 years of community education.
Investing in community education, skills and training.
This has been South Coast Colleges’ mission for the past 30 years and is still our main purpose today.
In 2013 we celebrated our 30th year of community education provision. Throughout that time South Coast Colleges has continued to focus on training and education and have become specialists in the field. We are trading under two branch names, South Coast Careers College (Vocational Training and Education Courses) and Adult Ed Community College (General Lifestyle Courses), collectively known as South Coast Colleges.
We believe that a harmonious and productive society requires enthusiastic participation by all sectors of the community in life-long learning. We therefore commit ourselves to the following core values:
Learner centred education and training that empowers people with knowledge and skills to realise their visions and goals
Excellence in delivery of professional training & learning experiences
Flexible and Relevant training that suits the needs of the community
Friendly and Accessible – providing learning opportunities for everyone in the community
Community and Collaboration – delivering services through collaborative partnerships with other community organisations
Integrity and Accountability in all aspects of our conduct as a not for profit community service provider
South Coast Colleges is registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission ABN 76 709 589 251
Launch of our Vocational ‘arm’: South Coast Careers College
South Coast Careers College (SCCC), the exciting vocational training arm of South Coast Colleges is officially launched!
Is this new?? Not really! We have a new name, but are drawing on the established reputation of excellence from our many years delivery of life changing accredited education programs.
We have led the way for many years as the community services training provider of choice. As our vocational training programs have grown (so has our footprint) we believe now is the time to launch a dedicated branch of the business that focuses wholly on nationally accredited qualifications and career pathways.
As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) we have continually delivered exceptional results with 87% of our students completing their chosen qualification compared to a national average of 35.8%. We take the matter of educating very seriously and design our training programs to extract the very best from our students.
The majority of our programs are classroom based face to face, interactive and project-based where possible. The programs are realistic in their time frame and we take the time to understand exactly what each student requires to get the very best out of the experience. All training is relevant to the local labour market and relevant to our student’s needs.
We understand that programs need to be affordable and accessible and we value our ongoing relationship with the NSW State Government and Smart and Skilled. Smart and Skilled enables us to offer subsidised training to enable people to enter, reskill or progress within the workforce.
