Indie College offers a range of accredited, full time courses that are designed to meet individual learning needs.

Our training supports learners with reading, writing, numeracy, employability skills and goal setting.

How it works

  • Training can start at any time; you don’t have to wait until next term or next semester to begin
  • Sessions are held one-on-one or in a small group setting
  • Learners work alongside their Coach (a qualified Trainer and Assessor)

During the course, learners are assessed in a variety of ways, including: writing questions, discussions, participation in group activities, oral questions and discussions portfolios of evidence and completion of practical tasks.
