Community College Northern Inland (CCNI) provides innovative education and employment-related training programs to meet the needs of local industry and people.
The College is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 90027) offering a range of accredited training in aged care and disability, community services and health, business and IT, construction and safety, engineering, hospitality, literacy programs and employability skills. As an approved community-based vocational education and training (VET) provider, the College is assisted in reaching students in regional and remote communities that experience barriers to training and employment through the NSW Government’s ACE Program and Smart and Skilled funding.
Eligible students can enrol in subsidised training that responds to local needs, increasing the likelihood that workplace-ready graduates will obtain local employment.
As a leading provider of quality education and training, the College plays an important role in community development, providing local access to programs including:
- Training for eligible business people and farmers affected by issues such as pandemic, flood and drought.
- Training under the AgSkilled Industry Led Workforce Development program.
- Training in information technology, business services or foundation skills under the Tech Savvy for Small Business (TSB) program.
- Access to the free Be Connected program for people over 50 who need help to get online and connect using technology.
- Support for eligible students who experience significant barriers to education and employment.
- Programs and support services that help equip people with the language, literacy, numeracy and employability skills required by businesses. This includes the Mobile Connection HUB which connects residents of the Moree Plains Shire to life-enhancing services, education, business and jobs through a secure mobile internet access point that’s convenient, easy, and free for users under the Australian Government-funded Local Jobs Program National Priority Fund.
Campuses also offer non-accredited programs for hobby, leisure, mental health and wellbeing that provide connection for communities and work to help people reach their full potential.
