Get in touch

Jesuit Community College provides people with real skills for life, learning and work. It draws on the rich tradition of Jesuit education committed to ‘care of the whole person’ and development of active and informed citizens. Through our College, we help individuals, and by extension their families and communities, reach their full potential.

How does the program help?

We seek to connect and engage with people who would otherwise not participate in education and training.

Our aim is to help our students develop personal confidence, and the foundational and employability skills that will improve their social and economic participation in the community.

We deliver training in three main areas:

  • Preparation for employment
  • Short vocational ‘taster’ courses
  • Languge, literacy, numeracy and digital literacy.
