What and how can you learn?

Learn Local organisations deliver both pre-accredited and accredited training in a variety of learning topics.

Get started with a pre-accredited program

These programs are designed to help learners gain the confidence and skills needed to look for a job or go on to further study. They include courses in communication, job search skills, getting ready to go back to work and literacy and numeracy. To deliver pre-accredited training, an organisation must be registered with the Adult, Community and Further Education (ACFE) Board. The quality and structure of all pre-accredited programs is regularly reviewed by the ACFE Board. More information about the ACFE Board is available on the

Accredited training

Get a qualification with an accredited course at a Learn Local organisation.  Accredited training is delivered by Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) right across Australia, including Learn Local organisations, TAFEs and private RTOs. It provides learners with the skills and knowledge that lead to a nationally recognised qualification. Accredited qualifications, such as the Certificate III in Community Services Work or the Advanced Diploma of Rural Business Management, deliver learners the skills and knowledge required to work in a broad range of occupations and industries.

Learn Local organisations work with learners and businesses to tailor their programs to individual needs and goals. Programs and courses are delivered in a variety of ways including in informal learning environments at the organisation, via video conferencing technology and some Learn Locals also offer online courses.

You can access the Haddon Community Learning Centre's programs via our website or for up-to-date information via our Facebook page.

How and when can you enrol?

You will need to enrol in most accredited courses available at Learn Locals in time for courses to start in February or July.  For pre-accredited training programs, as these are often shorter courses, you can enrol in courses anytime from February to November.

Contact the Haddon Community LEarning Centre or your  Learn Local organisation where you want to enrol for more information.

Fees and costs

The course fees you will pay depend on the fees set by your Learn Local. Contact your Learn Local to get all the information you need about course fees and costs.



Victorian Skills Gateway

Pathways to training

There are lots of ways to get into training courses – including options for people who don’t meet the traditional entry requirements. If there’s a course that you really want to do, but you don’t meet the entrance requirements there may be other ways to gain entry. You can talk to an adviser at your chosen Registered Training Organisation (RTO) for assistance or call the Haddon Community Learning Centre as we can assist you to map your pathway to your chosen career, or employment choice. So make an appointment to come in and  talk to us - we are here to help.

Study for the credits you need

You may find that you can study a different course first to gain the credits needed for entry into your first choice. Your Learn Local or a RTO adviser will help you work this out. 

Many Learn Local organisations have courses with direct pathways into Certificate and Diploma courses as we work in partnerships with RTOs. Around half of Learn Local organisations are also RTO's themselves. They also specialise in delivering training designed to help students to gain confidence and the fundamental skills that will lead to further training opportunities and employment. Contact the Haddon Community Learning Centre for assistance or search for a Learn Local organisation in your area, hear stories from learners and see the type of courses that are available on the Learn Local website.

Recognition of Prior Learning

You can talk to your Learn Local or RTO about how your existing skills and experience might count towards a prerequisite qualification. This is called Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and more information can be found on this site.
