Introduction to Community Services
In early 2017, Wellsprings was successful to set up a new pre-accredited program called Introduction to Community Services to address the women’s identified needs of:
- Pursuing careers in community services
- Having the necessary skills and aptitude to pursue further studies in community services
The course has been designed as a 10-week program which is to be delivered in a range of ways to stimulate the VET system of education. This will include lecture style classes, group activities, a range of formative assessment tasks, guest speakers and excursions/work placements. Please note this program runs in Term II and Term IV only.
A 5-week course discovering new career options for women.

Participants will gain an understanding of the myths related to these careers and the benefit they entail.
Fee: $15 per term
When: Terms 1 and 3 at 79 Langhorne street, Dandenong.
