About North Coast Community College

At North Coast Community College we are committed to the delivery of quality training that meets the needs of our communities and to advancing the skills and capabilities of our students. We are a not for profit organisation and have been providing training since 1981. NCCC serves students from Grafton to Ballina and beyond via online courses, with established training centres in Alstonville and Yamba. We continue to operate with a dedicated staff, employ a suite of quality trainers and are guided by a voluntary board of directors.

Our friendly team are happy to talk to you about your training needs. You can call us on 02 6628 5426 or find the courses that suit you here on our website.

There are outstanding possibilities created by government funded programs, specifically Smart & Skilled which is a part of the NSW Vocational Education and Training System. This initiative provides students with access to subsidised training (conditions apply).

This is an exciting and innovative time for community education and an opportunity to gain skills and training that works for you.
