Victorian Premier’s Champion Volunteer Awards

Delegates from The Centre and from NE Tracks LLEN were invited as guests to attend the Victorian Premier’s Champion Volunteer Awards at Government House (Victoria) this past weekend. The invite was extended as The Centre has worked in partnership with NE Tracks LLEN to deliver the Big Bytes for Small Organisations program locally.

The Centre launches partnership with Wodonga TAFE

Civil Construction The Centre

The Centre for Continuing Education in consultation with Wodonga Institute of TAFE (WIOT) have developed a pre-apprenticeship program for RII20715 Certificate II in Civil Construction to be delivered in North East Victoria.

Utilising Wodonga TAFEs Barnawartha LOGIC site, students will learn hands-on construction techniques, entry-level skills and the knowledge required to commence an entry level career in the civil construction industry.

With The Centre delivering units onsite at Wodonga TAFE’s Logic campus in Barnawartha North, it is anticipated that learners will develop an interest in further study potentially continuing their study with Wodonga TAFE at a Certificate III level.

The program will involve local organisations; such as the Works and Horticulture departments at the Rural City of Wangaratta, Lima South Quarry, local builders, concreters, traffic control organisations; through the site visits, guest speakers, live workplace observations and demonstrations.

Felicity Williams CEO of The Centre speaks of the need for skilled workers in the region. “With the Federal and State government’s infrastructure agenda, there is no doubt that the need for skilled workers to join the civil construction workforce along the Hume corridor is growing. Consequently, The Centre is committed to supporting job seekers to develop key skills to join this industry.”

Anne Pennington Awards 2019

Two Awards given at the 2019 Anne Pennington Award

The Centre’s Anne Pennington Award is celebrated each year during Adult Learners Week to honour the memory of former Centre staff Anne Pennington who passed away in 2004.

Students are nominated for the award based on their enjoyment of, and engagement with learning, as well as development of knowledge and skills, care and encouragement of others, persistence and teamwork.

2019 marks an evolution in the Award, with the two successful recipients of Bronwyn Wiedermann and Jenna Towner receiving the dual honour.

The Centre – Official Launch of Seymour Location

Seymour Launch

The Centre has a longstanding history of providing education and training services in the North East, including lifelong learning and community development opportunities. Earlier this year we expanded our reach down the hume corridor, opening our new office and training facility in Seymour.

Todays event marked the official launch of our new facility in Seymour with the official ribbon cutting to open the facility performed by the Hon. Jaclyn Symes (Minister for Regional Development, Minister for Agriculture, Minister for Resources and Deputy Leader of the Government in the Legislative Council).

Taungurung Man Shane Monk performed a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony, providing an opportunity for The Centre to recognise and pay respect to Aboriginal culture and history and the traditional owners of the land on which our new facility stands.

CEO of The Centre Felicity Williams was excited to officially launch The Centre’s Southern Office. “Over the past 2 to 3 years we have been journeying down the freeway in discussion with key stakeholders in the Murrindini and Mitchell shires, working to rectify the under provision of foundation and entry level education and training within the region.”
