Open to individuals who are 17 years of age or older and who have a mild to moderate disability or live with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, with a strong focus on those who live with intellectual disability.

Whilst classrooms are supported by Support Workers, students who require specific support such as Auslan Interpreters, Live Captioning, one-on-one support, etc. will need to fund these through their own NDIS packages.

Our programs run from February – December each year, with weekly classes. All programs have four terms per year and 10 classes in each term. Students enrolling are enrolling into the full year.

Bus Stop Films is committed to creating a COVID safe environment for our staff, students and community. All staff and students must be fully vaccinated against Covid19 or provide a medical exemption.
