Endeavour Foundation leading the way with education opportunities in disability sector

Endeavour Foundation’s CLUE students have been hosting a ‘CLUE on the Deck Easter High Tea’ on Tuesday 27th March at their Windsor service, providing an opportunity to showcase their talents.

There was food, fun and entertainment but, more importantly, the students showed what they do on the CLUE program (Continued Learning for Under 30s at Endeavour).

CLUE is a program which aims to foster independence, social skills, learning and development in young people with a disability. It supports people up to 30 years of age to develop literacy, technology or creative skills and to gain voluntary or paid employment.

Endeavour Foundation piloted this advanced program and it is now recognised as one of the best in the sector.

CLUE is one of a number of education initiatives run by Endeavour Foundation.

Latch-on® (Literacy And Technology, Hands On) is a tertiary education program designed to develop literacy, technology and life skills in young adults with an intellectual disability. It improves confidence, employability and life opportunities as well as leading to a Certificate II in Literacy and Numeracy.

It was developed in partnership with The University of Queensland and is available only through Endeavour Foundation in Brisbane, Bundaberg, Townsville and Sydney. Students attend two days a week for the two-year program with a third year optional.

Endeavour Foundation’s Business College offers School-Based Traineeships in Disability Services. This is enables Year 11 students to start a two-year traineeship which leads to a Certificate III in Disability.

The benefits of this program include gaining points towards a Queensland Certificate of Education, earning a nationally-recognised qualification and being paid while learning.

There are approximately 230 occupations within the Endeavour Foundation structure and the School-Based Traineeships provide an opportunity for students to start their career path at an early age.

Brisbane's CLUE and Latch-On® are based at 72 Blackmore Street, Windsor.
