Alison Heagney
Executive Officer
Welcome to our Term 4 courses. The college has introduced a new website and enrolment system this term which will give students greater access to their training and better ways to communicate with us. I am also very proud to introduce our new Foundations Programs in almost every campus run by highly experienced trainers.

Foundations Programs are courses which are flagged specifically to enhance our community’s access to education and training opportunities. They may be courses which have no fee for enrolment, or may ask for a small donation for the training. Other courses may be subsidised training in partnership between us and a government agency/department aiming to promote access and increase vocational education and training outcomes for a number of reasons. Identified skill shortages or breaking down barriers to training and employment are among the many reasons subsidised training is being offered through our college.

Our Foundations Programs are just one of the ways our college stays connected and ensures our commitment to making sure that all members of our community have the opportunity to participate in education and training.

We are already busy planning for 2018 which promises to be a bumper year; so if you would like to be involved please contact us.

From the President

I am proud to be part of this Association and the Adult and Community Education sector. We have a commitment to provide lifelong learning opportunities that meet peoples' education and skills training needs, but which are enjoyable, relaxed and held in a friendly environment. We want people to take advantage of the short courses we offer and to feel they can move into and out of the system as they choose.

We hope people will use Community College Northern Inland Inc. as a pathway to further education and training. We also want people to tell us what their education needs are so we can be more responsive to our community.
