Why Solutions 4 Learning Courses?

 

All of our courses are held in small groups, face to face. We are an RTO providing courses that meet the standards set for VET organisations in Queensland. We are also a community based non profit, aimed at helping the Sunshine Coast community succeed. Our courses are low cost or free to eligible students, and all of our volunteers have been through extensive training.

Adult Learning Courses

 

Our vision is to see all adults in the Sunshine Coast with the reading, writing, math, language and computer skills they need to succeed. We not only teach these skills, but we help our students build confidence and set themselves up for more fulfilling lives. Many of our classes are free or low cost to eligible students. Otherwise, group classes are $15 per 3 hour session, and personal tutoring is $15 per session.

See our course schedule for upcoming literacy, numeracy and business classes for adults in the Sunshine Coast.

Austudy/Abstudy Approved Courses

Studying can be an expensive and time consuming activity, with many students requiring financial support and assistance. Luckily, there is help available. Austudy and Abstudy are Federal Government programs that provide funding for students undertaking pre approved courses. This funding is intended to help students pay costs relating to the course, including student payments, that they are completing.
