Congratulations to Jobs Victoria Partner Wingate Avenue Community Centre on winning the Community Training Provider of the Year Award at the 2017 Victorian Training Awards.

24 November 2015

Residents in Melbourne's inner north are benefiting from the transformative power of education and training programs, thanks to Wingate Avenue Community Centre – a Learn Local and Registered Training Organisation (RTO) located in the heart of an Ascot Vale public housing estate.

Wingate plays a vital role in providing education and community development programs for people on the estate. Offering three literacy English programs, as well as digital technology and financial literacy programs, Wingate helps community members build their skills and find employment. Wingate's programs provide pathways into Certificate qualifications and work experience opportunities.

The Community Training Provider of the Year Award recognises innovation and excellence by a Learn Local organisation involved in improving education of the local community or workplace. It's part of the Victorian Training Awards, which celebrates the outstanding achievements of vocational education and training students, teachers, training providers and employers.

Jobs Victoria extends our congratulations to Wingate for this significant acknowledgement of their work.
