What is Learn Local?

Learn Local providers across Victoria offer a range of education and training programs designed to meet the learning needs of their local community. Cloverdale is widely regarded for its willingness and ability to create programs in response to community demand.

As a Government-registered Learn Local provider, we can help you return to study, improve your reading, writing and maths skills, gain a qualification, get a job or learn something new.

Learn Local providers are friendly and welcoming, with qualified trainers who are focussed on helping you succeed. There are no tests, assignments or exams, and participants are recognised for their learning and achievements.

When you sign up to a Learn Local course, you’re making a commitment to attend each week it runs. Our programs usually run over eight to 10 weeks during term time. At Cloverdale, we time our Learn Local programs to fit in with school – not starting before 9.30am and always finishing by 3pm.

We offer pre-accredited programs that are designed to help learners gain the confidence and skills needed to look for a job or go on to further study. They include courses in computers (from basics through to intermediate), communication, hospitality, job search skills, getting ready to go back to work and literacy and numeracy.

To deliver pre-accredited training, an organisation must be registered with the Adult, Community and Further Education (ACFE) Board. The quality and structure of all pre-accredited programs is regularly reviewed by the ACFE Board.
