Cloverdale’s Learn Local programs run through each school term, usually over 8 to 10 weeks.
There is no limit to the number of courses you can do; some are designed to lead into other programs. We are working towards incorporating more blended delivery of our Learn Local, so that you can learn from home or through a mix of on and off-site delivery.
