If you have an intellectual or learning disability, our Supported Learning courses will equip you with valuable skills and confidence for work and everyday life. You’ll become more independent, and if you’ve recently finished secondary school, you’ll be able to make a smoother transition to tertiary education.
At Ara, you’ll be welcomed and encouraged by dedicated Supported Learning tutors and staff who are committed to your wellbeing and success. You’ll also be part of the wider Ara student community and have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of on-campus events and activities.
