Learn Local Awards 2020 Pre-accredited Pathway Program

On Tuesday the 1st of December it was announced by the Hon. Gayle Tierney, Minister for Skills and Training, that The Centre was awarded the Victorian Learn Local Pre-accredited Pathway Program award for the program of Getting There at the 2020 Learn Local Awards.

Getting There is an engaging and supportive learning and education program that helps learners to gain the confidence and skills needed to apply for and gain employment or go onto further education. It is so much more than a literacy and numeracy program, with Getting There helping learners to develop as people by fostering the self-awareness needed to take action to change their lives.

CEO Felicity Williams talks of how proud The Centre is of this achievement. “The Victorian Training Award Community Provider of the Year award is the culmination of six years of hard work by our wonderful and passionate people. We have been driven by our commitment to support all of our learners to achieve their success and their goals.”

“Delivered through Certificates I and II in General Education for Adults (CGEA), Getting There was introduced in 2017. It was designed for job seekers and people with significant challenges such as being in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. At its core, it assists learners to understand themselves in relation to the world around them. It’s been so successful that the majority of graduates from the course have achieved employment, or gone on to further education.

We are incredibly proud that Getting There has been recognised as a leading program in the State through the Learn Local awards.”

The Centre was also a finalist in the Victorian Learn Collaboration Award in partnership with Open Door Neighbourhood House at the 2020 Learn Local Awards for its Pathways 2 Possibilities program. The Centre congratulates Cloverdale Community Centre on winning this award for its wonderful collaboration with Gordon TAFE.
