Supporting our community with Certificate I in Transition Education students
Wednesday, 5 August 2020
Students in the Certificate I in Transition Education class planted a range of Australian native trees on campus today - all bird attracting species!
Fifteen trees were planted under the professional guidance of Wodonga TAFE's gardener Matt, as part of a volunteering project for Planet Ark’s National Tree Day which will be celebrated this Sunday 2 August.
The Transition Education course focuses on supporting students to investigate opportunities for active community participation, but due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, students have not been able to volunteer in the community. Teacher Vicky Drage said they have been thinking creatively of ways to still help while staying safe.
"The students also circulated Jeans for Genes day merchandise and donation boxes on campus today as part of the fundraising for research into children’s genetic diseases this Friday. We also had some help today from some of the Certificate I and II in Work Education students who decided to lend a hand."
The Certificate I in Transition Education provides an introduction to adult learning. This course is specifically designed for learners with evidence of a permanent cognitive impairment or intellectual disability.
