The Right Conversation Can Change A Life

Improved Learning

Helping you move from school to further education

Need help transitioning from school to university, TAFE or other tertiary studies?

We can help you navigate your lifestyle change from school to university or further education by building your capacity and developing your skills so you can live and study more independently.

If you have a current NDIS plan with funding for ‘Improved Learning’, you may be eligible to access a range of our supports. 

Our Improved Learning supports may include helping you to budget on your own, assistance with time management, setting up student accommodation/living arrangements and connecting you with other mainstream support services.

Improved Learning Support

Whether you’re moving from school to TAFE, University or any other educational program, we can help you manage the transition and prepare you for life as a student in higher education.

Social Skills Workshops

We offer both 1-on-1 and group workshops with peers to help you learn positive ways to deal with common feelings like stress and anxiety as you continue your studies and enter the workforce.

Time & Workload Management

Entering higher education can be quite different from high school. Many institutions do not offer the same level as support that many high schools do, which is why we’re here to help you manage your time and workload for a healthy work-life balance.

Guidance & Skills Training

Our friendly support staff can help guide you through the application process with your educational program of choice. We can also help connect you with other supports and providers like students services or disability liaisons so you can study as independently as possible.

Assistance in Educational Programs

As part of our Improved Learning supports, we can help you with behavioural support, participation and engagement, personal care and social interaction so you can feel confident integrating with your new classroom.

What is Improved Learning?

Out of the three primary categories in an NDIS plan, Improved Learning falls under the Capacity Building category. It is used to fund training, advice and help for you to move from school to further education, such as University or TAFE.

How do I get funding for Improved Learning?

To get Improved Learning, it’s important you accurately describe your current study arrangements and how additional support would help you achieve your goals. This can be done at either your initial application meeting with the NDIA, or at your annual plan renewal meeting if you would like this support added to your NDIS plan. 

If your child is still at school, we suggest asking the school to provide a report outlining any additional supports they might recommend. If this isn’t an option, you may be able to ask your current disability services provider to write an impact statement recommending the same. 

Otherwise, the best course of action is generally to ask your GP to provide supporting evidence that outlines any learning disabilities, restrictions around accessibility or other barriers you may be experiencing to ensure you get the correct amount of funding in the right categories.
