Be Connected


From the Executive Officer
  • Welcome to 2019. During the last part of 2018 we farewelled Joan Longworth as the Narrabri Coordinator after 27 years of excellent service to the college. Joan capably ushered in Trish Dandridge as her replacement and in Moree we also welcomed a new coordinator – Catherine Davis as Julianne Farrell has moved across into a VET Coordinator role across our region.

    We ran free workshops and accredited training for farmers and businesses as our part of the drought effort which are continuing this term. Thank you to trainers who have donated their time.

  • At Gunnedah we launched a free Learner Driver program which is now ongoing. This term we are commencing as a “Be Connected” hub for older people to access digital device training free of charge so register your interest or refer a friend who needs help.

    Thanks again.

From the President
  • I am proud to be part of this Association and the Adult and Community Education sector. We have a commitment to provide lifelong learning opportunities that meet peoples' education and skills training needs, but which are enjoyable, relaxed and held in a friendly environment. We want people to take advantage of the short courses we offer and to feel they can move into and out of the system as they choose.

  • We hope people will use Community College Northern Inland Inc. as a pathway to further education and training. We also want people to tell us what their education needs are so we can be more responsive to our community.
