From the Executive Officer

Alison Heagney, Executive OfficerThis term the College, staff and trainers are using their assets to reach out to farmers and businesses in this drought. You will see that we are offering free one-to-one sessions for farmers to assist accessing the Drought Hub and to prepare documentation.

We are also offering 40 free hobby courses to farmers or business owners in the area. This is a great opportunity to try a class and many of our wonderful tutors are donating their time, other costs are covered by the College. These classes are also available for the general public and paying a fee helps us towards costs.

We are offering a lot of introductory courses this term to prepare you for study in 2019. You can try some units from information technology (computers), business, community services, disabilities or aged care or even look at options in hospitality. We also have our Foundation Skills, Kickstart and Next Steps programs for people starting out on their learning journey.

Please let people know about the drought courses and encourage anyone that you know could benefit to come along. Thanks again.

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.
