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 Goonellabah and beyond via online courses, with established training centres in Alstonville, Yamba and Ballina. 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.
We offer an extensive scope of nationally accredited full qualifications and sets of skills from Certificate I through to Certificate IV which can assist people in gaining employment and being successful in their roles. As well, we offer many general interest courses ranging from computing skills to leisure and lifestyle.
We contextualise and deliver customised training programs within a broad range of industries, provide one-on-one training with a focus on support for those with special needs and/or barriers to employment and training. We also provide flexibility in training by offering a range of delivery methods and modes.
- Flexible and responsive to client, employer and industry needs
- Emphasise the enjoyment of the learning experience
- Assist with vocational opportunities, and
- Empower students to participate in the community and workforce to their full potential.
Our passion is helping students unlock their potential through quality flexible training. It is our close relationship with local businesses and business leaders that ensures what we teach is relevant, practical and transferable and that is what sets our training apart from other providers.
Students who study with NCCC have the advantage of our personalised approach to the training process. They are supported by our friendly staff and experienced trainers from start to finish. They have access to our fantastic facilities and will work through practical assessments based on situations encountered in the real world.
Through our community programs our involvement extends to specialist programs, such as youth programs and literacy, programs for people with disabilities and mental health challenges as well as the provision of a meeting place for a cross section of local groups.
