The 2020 Victorian Learn Local Awards recognise the inspirational efforts of learners, practitioners and training providers in the Learn Local sector. They are held annually by the Adult, Community and Further Education Board.
The Learn Local sector plays a major role in the development of local individuals, businesses and communities throughout Victoria. It delivers the skills that support our economy and underpin the inclusiveness of our communities.
The Awards are an opportunity to showcase this valuable work. Through the Awards we acknowledge the sector’s many contributions and celebrate the success of learners, practitioners and training providers across Victoria.
