Reconnecting people to life-changing learning

The Centre is about to commence delivery of its second Skills First Reconnect program funded by the Victorian Government’s, Department of Education and Training.

“With our two Reconnect programs, The Centre is receiving funding of over $1 million to provide one-on-one support to help people with significant barriers to accessing formal education programs to eventually enrol in a course that will change their lives” said Felicity Williams, CEO of The Centre for Continuing Education.

“Reconnect funding has provided the backbone funding we needed to establish our Learner Engagement Team,” said Ms Williams. “The establishment of this team has been a watershed for The Centre, enabling us to provide much needed wrap around support for our learners, many of whom have multiple challenges, including mental health issues, family dysfunction, alcohol and drug dependence, unemployment and low educational attainment.”
