Who We Are

Community Colleges Australia was launched in 2007 in Canberra and was established as the peak-body for not-for-profit owned learning organisations across Australia.  As long-established learning organisations located in metropolitan, regional and rural locations, ‘community colleges’ are strategically placed to provide focus on individual and student welfare with commitment to the employment outcomes for, and personal development of, the individual.


Our Vision and Mission

Our vision is for dynamic and vibrant Australian communities, informed and empowered through learning.

To make our vision a reality, we work to empower the community education sector by:

  • increasing the awareness of the sector and its place in the economic and social fabric of our nation;
  • advocating at all levels of government on the value of the community education sector, and our members’ activities and programs; and
  • building business opportunities for our members.
