A WARM WELCOME
From the Executive Officer
Welcome to Community College Northern Inland. We're delighted to share with you the latest information about the Adult and Community Education our campuses are providing in our region.
As an approved community-based vocational education and training (VET) provider, our college is assisted in reaching students in regional and remote communities that experience barriers to training and employment through the NSW Government’s ACE Program and Smart and Skilled funding.
Community College Northern Inland
What we do
We have a track record delivering our training under these programs in a way we think makes us special. We take the opportunity here to provide a snapshot of some of the subsidised and supported programs we deliver.
- Training for eligible business people and farmers affected by issues such as pandemic and drought.
- Foundation skills training.
- Programs and support services that help equip people with the language, literacy, numeracy and employability skills required by businesses.
- Training in information technology, business services or foundation skills under the Tech Savvy for Small Business (TSB) program.
- Access to the free Be Connected program for people over 50 who need help to get online and connect using technology.
- Support for eligible students who experience significant barriers to education and employment.
In addition to the range of accredited training we offer to adults, we also help our communities in other ways, through programs like the Narrabri Women’s Shed that support connection through shared activities and informal learning, and the adoption of the Barraba Community News, a locally owned and produced newspaper.
The size and distinctly rural aspect of the Northern Inland area brings unique challenges to the task of providing adult education that responds to the needs of the individual, of business, and industry. Our dedicated staff works with a commitment to overcoming these challenges to provide learning experiences that enrich the lives of thousands of people each year.
Our College continues to be at the heart of the community, making a positive impact in everything we do. Please get in touch with us if your organisation needs help to address skills shortages, or if you have an interest in partnering with us to bring about positive change.
