Castlemaine Continuing Education – News


Media Statement – 18 January 2018

For immediate release


Castlemaine Community House is saddened to hear that Castlemaine Continuing Education will cease operating in Mount Alexander Shire after being a respected education provider in our community for over 30 years. Castlemaine Community House has valued working in partnership with both Castlemaine Continuing Education and Maldon Neighborhood House to promote and deliver Learn Local education in Mount Alexander Shire.

At the request of the Department of Education and Training (DET), Castlemaine Community House has agreed to meet to discuss the future of ACFE (Adult, Community and Further Education) funded courses in Mount Alexander Shire. It is important that the Castlemaine community still has access to a range of fantastic education opportunities, including those providing pathways to further education and employment.
