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 Mission and Vision

Our mission to strengthen Australian not-for-profit community education as a vital local service, and our Vision is to be recognised nationally as the leading influencer of quality community education provision through powerful representation, advocacy and support for members at state and national levels.
