genU Training was established in 1998 to support learners with disability to access education and training.
We are a leader in the development of courses to assist learners with intellectual disability and permanent cognitive impairment, and a major stakeholder in the community sector, skilling the future workforce in areas such as disability, ageing and mental health.
Each of the following processes is designed to support you, as a genU learner, through your training experience:
Marketing and Recruitment
We are committed to providing you with accurate and accessible information about our services and performance to assist you in making an informed decision about your current and future learning. genU Training works closely with referring parties including internal branches of genU, government agencies, and community service providers to support you in your choices.
genU Training is committed to aligning your interests, skills and aspirations with the most suitable training and education opportunities.
Our enrolment process is designed to guide you and allows for the inclusion of supports and individualised learning plans to assist you to navigate your studies. Our Learner Handbook outlines our commitment to access and equity, reasonable adjustment and learner welfare and support options. To determine your needs, you will be invited to complete a language, literacy and numeracy skills assessment. This process allows the team at genU Training to develop particularised supports to develop your core skill needs.
Support and Progression
genU Training courses are designed and timetabled to encourage accessibility and support for you as a learner. Embedded within each scheduled timetable are pre and post-training support sessions along with provision of additional one-to-one support and/or group-based sessions. Support for learners with disability includes, but is not limited to, working closely with genU Training’s external and internal stakeholders, including disability support workers, carers, community entities and state-based agencies. Our robust mechanisms for collecting feedback enable us to monitor progress and embed responsive and timely intervention support strategies.
