It’s a busy world out there. And in our everyday rush to get through tasks at home, work and with our families and communities wellbeing whilst without question is important, can sometimes feel a little hard to come by.
A recent Australian consumer study into wellbeing showed that:
- 58 per cent wish they could spend more time on improving their health and wellbeing.
- 79 per cent of parents with children aged less than 18 years of age wish they could spend more time on improving their health and wellbeing.
- 83 per cent are prepared to pay more money for products or services that enhance their feelings of wellbeing.
Let this year be a turning point for you.
In response to local customer demand the College has developed a program of wellbeing short courses in Mindfulness and Tai Chi with enrolments available now. Enhancing your wellbeing can really assist to strengthen your emotional resilience and enhance your physical health. Jump in.

Community Colleges are places where you can really amplify your life and career possibilities.
In our work we see people at all kinds of crossroads, not knowing which way to go. Our tip is not to focus on the problem, focus on the solutions. Stay motivated by surrounding yourself with energised people and get to where you want to go.
Perhaps your goal is a first job, or you are seeking to realign your employability profile. Taking that first step is sometimes the hardest. Recognising your personal value and really using that to best advantage is the key.
What’s the reward for stepping out of your comfort zone? A full, happy and vital life.
Do you need to learn how to operate a computer or an iPad, use Microsoft Word, Excel or MYOB? Perhaps you may prefer one on one instruction customised to your particular needs? Alternatively, if you are an employer, did you know that the College can deliver courses at your workplace that are tailored to the specific needs of your employees? Please contact the College for further information on our customised short courses and workplace training.
With change being the new certainty and flexibility a must have skill there has never been a better time than right now to open the window to fresh possibilities in your career.
We are excited about the unprecedented abundance of opportunity for the Clarence Valley and are encouraging our local communities to take hold of the moment.
“The days of jobs for life are well and truly a thing of the past. Our expectations and motivations around employment have changed dramatically over the last decade. Combining these factors with a fluid economy means we often now need to reassess to move our career forward”, said Narelle Millar, Chief Executive, North Coast Community College.
“In my role, the biggest joy is seeing the life changing impact that new skills and qualifications can bring to a student’s career outlook. That could be a young person just starting out, or someone realigning their employability profile. Taking that first step is sometimes the hardest. Recognising your personal value and really using that to best advantage is the key”.
The College has been delivering nationally recognised qualifications, work skills compliance and customised lifestyle courses for almost 30 years and have seen many people transform in that time.
After completing high school recent student Luke Skinner decided to gain qualifications in aviation, hospitality and language so he could go in new directions; and says “training is an experience in itself. It prepares you well to confidently reach out to employment and employers. Definitely do it, work hard and you can get there”.
Helen Want has transitioned from hospitality into the business sector. Having successfully navigated her way through MYOB and excel she is about to start a certificate course in business administration through flexible delivery. “I realised I wanted a career change and everyone at the College has been fantastic, I’ve been supported in selecting the right courses, made friends with other students, use my new skills at work every day and would say to anyone thinking about training don’t hesitate. Yes it can be challenging, but you really do need qualifications to get ahead”.
Former international transport logistics coordinator Malcolm Campbell is just 7 weeks away from completing his certification in aged care. “The College experience has been wonderful; the team organised 100 hours of work placement and provided an opportunity for me to gain my first aid certificate as well. Training locally means I don’t have to travel, and I really enjoy the classroom learning over an on-line option. I’m paying my way through this course, and selected the College because of its established links to the local aged care industry”.
“We work with our students to encourage success and it’s our commitment to assist the Clarence Valley community connect with new possibilities. Having a modern Community College centrally located in Yamba is a genuine asset – so please go right ahead and call in to see how we can help. Training for a career change or skilling to remain relevant in your industry is so accessible when you have a College in your neighbourhood” said Narelle Millar.
