Life-Long Learning:

The Victorian Government is investing in lifelong learning, jobs and growth in the electorate of Broadmeadows and the City of Hume.

Free TAFE courses beginning next year are crucial in this community, the Member for Broadmeadows, Mr Frank McGuire said today.

Courses range from Building and Construction, Plumbing, Engineering Pathways and Education Support among others available at KANGAN Institute in Broadmeadows.

“These courses are targeted at the jobs most in demand according to Victorian employers,” Mr McGuire said. He welcomed the Andrews Labor Government’s commitment to build six new world class schools in the Hume region to address population growth. “This is an important announcement in continuing to build Victoria as the Education State,” Mr McGuire said.

A re-elected Andrews Labor Government will make sure every new Victorian primary school comes complete with a kindergarten, making it easier on parents and building for a growing state.

The Andrews Labor Government will invest almost $5 billion over the next decade to deliver a full 15 hours of three-year-old kinder, making sure about a quarter of Victorian families pay nothing at all. We’ll cover 65 per cent of the costs for families on higher incomes.

Kindergarten is the foundation of a great education, teaching kids communication skills, responsibility, and helping them make new friends – so there’s more to do to ensure all Victorian children reap the benefits, and now we’re going further.

Next year marks the 20th anniversary since I began working to establish the internationally acclaimed Global Learning Village model for lifelong learning which has flourished in Hume.

The Global Learning Village Model has been a successful collaboration with the City of Hume for life-long learning from pre-school reading classes to university degrees in centres in Broadmeadows, Craigieburn and soon in Sunbury.

Mr McGuire also congratulated Enable Enterprises for delivering skills and jobs through their social enterprise and Julie McKay for her passionate commitment to inclusion through the dignity of work.
