Professional Development

Our Professional Development (PD) Calendar of Events is well established and is offered via face-to-face and online meetings. Our online networks and web conference room discussions are part of the innovative PD opportunities that CCA offers. CCA runs regular professional development programs for member CEOs, VET managers and marketing/promotions officers.

Building Governance Frameworks: Professional Development Days for CEOs and their Board Chairs

Please note: these two days are for CCA members only

Community Colleges Australia invites CCA members to your choice of two one-day professional and organisational development sessions, entitled “Building Governance Frameworks”.  These sessions have been set up in recognition of the important governance relationship between the CEOs of community colleges and the Chairs of the Boards of Directors, and is supported by a grant from the NSW Department of Industry.

CCA’s signature professional development activity is the annual conference, this year to be held in Melbourne 25-27 July 2017 with the theme “Community Education: Investing in Our Future”.  The conference provides a forum for member networking and a platform for a discussion of key issues affecting the sector, together with future insights, featuring Australian and international keynote speakers.

The highly successful 2016 Sydney conference had the theme "Innovation: What's Next for Community Education?”

The 'CCA Online' Moodle portal is a personal space, accessible only by members, via our website. This secure feature provides sector information, online discussions, and areas for specific groups, such as Executive Officers and VET Managers, and validation opportunities. It is a forum for cooperation and exchange of information, ideas and issues.
