Consultation has concluded

Learning for life and learning throughout life is good for ourselves, our community and our society. Our community vision is for Wollongong to be a city where everyone has the opportunity to learn, to be creative and to become connected. That's why, by 2024 we are aiming to become a learning city.

We want to encourage everyone, no matter what your past experience of learning and education, to become a lifelong learner. Council, and other organisations in our community are keen to play a role in creating opportunities for you to learn, experiment and achieve your life goals. By working together and coordinating what we offer to our community – whether through formal ‘education’ programs or through informal, ‘hands on’ learning – we can create greater benefit for our city and our community.

    What learning means to the communities I work with

    This survey is for service providers, and/or representatives of service providers only.   If you would like to share your ideas as an individual community member and resident please click here.

    We are really keen to get an understanding of what learning means to the communities you work with, and how we can support their participation in lifelong learning. When providing responses, please keep in mind the community/communities that you work directly with. This survey should take about 7 minutes to complete.
