The creativity, skills and experience of more than 30 students will be showcased on the big screen at the first-ever Bendigo TAFE Transition and Work Education (TWED) Short Film Festival on Thursday 20 October.
Held at Bendigo City Campus, this free event is open to public and will feature approximately 10 short films chronicling the students’ learning experiences.
The creative minds behind the short films are completing the Certificate I in Transition Education, Certificate I and II in Work Education and the Course/Certificate I in Initial Adult Literacy and Numeracy. The courses support post-school age learners with permanent intellectual disabilities to develop life skills, work readiness and options for further study.
Bendigo TAFE CEO Sally Curtain said the film festival displays student achievements and learning outcomes.
“Our Transition and Work Education programs play an important role in our community by supporting learners with accessing meaningful pathways beyond compulsory school, from work and life skills right through to preparing for further study,” Ms Curtain said.
“We’re incredibly excited to present Bendigo TAFE’s first ever TWED Short Film Festival which will showcase the skills and potential of our amazing students, and we look forward to welcoming our wider community at this special event.”
