Short Courses


Learn Local courses are short pre-accredited training that includes short courses in communication, study skills, job skills, preparation to go back to work, reading and writing, maths, English and computers as well as preparation for various industries such as horticulture or hospitality.

Pre-accredited training is flexible and can be tailored specifically to suit your needs and schedule. You can learn in a classroom or online, at the pace that you choose. Class sizes are often small and Learn Local trainers have an informal, yet professional, style of teaching.

There are many benefits to undertaking pre-accredited training at a Learn Local provider such as making new friends, improving your communication or preparing for further learning or work. Completing pre-accredited training can also help you to get new skills that you need for your job or even to change careers.
