    Our Classes

Training and Courses

Our courses are designed to help you learn new skills and build on these skills in a practical and fun way. To ensure we do this, we keep our classes small (6-10 participants), embed practical hands on learning into them all, and have experienced tutors from education and industry deliver them. 

With over 60 different courses, check them out and talk to us if you don’t see the course you need..

Discover Community

If you're looking for something fun to do with your friends, or wanting to meet new people, join one of our friendly social events.

Come for a free coffee and some conversation at one of our Chatty Cafés, join the walking group, volunteer to help or book a seat at one of our award winning weekly Community Lunches.  There’s a place for everyone at BNC.

Looking for a Job

We know finding a job is hard, especially if you’ve been unemployed for over six months or face significant challenges in your daily life.

The Ballarat Jobs Victoria Work & Learning Centre team offer a free employment service to Workforce Australia clients to help you retrain, build your skills, apply for jobs, prepare for interviews and connect you to employers.
