Adult Education

About Us

COTA ACT offers guest speakers to talk to groups on issues that are relevant to people over 50.  

 COTA’s Community Education program encourages and enables older people in our community to minimise the risks to their health and well-being. We offer a range of free community education sessions to increase awareness of services, and provide practical and relevant information

Our sessions are delivered using a ‘Peer Education’ model. This is a process where people who share common ground teach and learn from one another.  COTA trains presenters aged over 50 who then volunteer their time to talk to older people in our community about healthy ageing issues.

Community Education sessions are:-

* Free

*Delivered by trained volunteers

*Avaliable across Canberra

*Structured with practical focus providing simple strategies to deal with issues raised

*Designed to be interactive

*For groups small or large

*45 minutes to an hour in duration
