Community Learning Euroa (CLE) and Mansfield Adult Continuing Education (MACE) have partnered to deliver pre-accredited education and training programs for Euroa locals. Funded by Adult, Community and Further Education (ACFE), the first course, a ‘Learner Engagement Program’, starts in March and runs for five weeks.
MACE CEO, Kylie Richards, explains the partnership came about after CLE expressed interest in delivering pre-accredited training in 2022, but required support from an auspice organisation.
“MACE is passionate about linking communities through learning, so we are excited for the opportunity to bring more education options to the broader community” says Ms Richards; “By partnering with CLE, we can help expand their scope of delivery”.
The Learner Engagement Program will explore work possibilities and how to choose and pursue employment opportunities.
“You will be guided by experienced mentors and trainers, including Craig Mercuri and Rob Woodward” says Ms Richards; “If you are above school leaving age and wish to discover new pathways for entering the workforce, we encourage you to sign up to this free course”.
Additional courses in 2022 include Digital Essentials for Beginners and Digital Essentials Intermediate, as well as a general pre-accredited Employment Preparation course.
Courses are held in person at the William Pearson Memorial Hall, Kirkland Ave, Euroa. Alternatively, there will be remote learning options and blended delivery.
All enrolments are through MACE’s website www.mace.vic.edu.au or phone 5775 2077.
