Learn & Discover
Span offers a range of pre-accredited and fee for service courses to prepare you for work and further study or for personal interest and fun.
Some of these courses are funded by Adult Community and Further Education (ACFE). ACFE courses are low-cost, government-supported, taught by experienced tutors and are held in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Span is not a NDIS provider but does provide activities under NDIS plans.
Contact us to determine your eligibility for ACFE funded courses or to discuss NDIS plan options.
Check out our classes under the categories below.
The majority of courses are held on site @ Span but some activities can be, and may be, offered online.
To meet Covid-19 restrictions or to keep our community safe during case surges, some on-site activities may be switched to online at short notice.
All participants are encouraged to speak with Span staff for assistance with getting online.
Span will advise students prior to course commencement if there are course material fees to be paid.
This will be a separate payment and in addition to the course fee.
Public and school holidays
We are closed on public holidays but some courses operate during school holidays.
Your tutor will advise if your class continues through school holidays. Fees are calculated with this in mind.
