Education

Courses are funded by the Department of Education and Training’s Adult Community and Further Education Board (ACFE) and are ongoing Learn Local programs. Enrolments are taken throughout the year and classes run both at Wellsprings and at our outreach locations throughout the City of Greater Dandenong, Casey and Cardinia Shire.

All Wellsprings’ Learn Local courses are pre-accredited and create strong foundations and pathways for adults into further education or employment. Most classes are child friendly and offer a free volunteer run child-minding service in nearby room (currently not operating child minding due to COVID19 restrictions). Come and talk to us about learning English, computers or vocational pathway programs and meet the friendly staff and volunteers at Wellsprings!
