Pre-accredited Courses

Lalor Living & Learning Centre is your Learn Local provider of short courses in English, general literacy and basic computers for adult learners who are not ready for nationally accredited courses. Pre-accredited (or non-accredited) courses are designed as introductory courses to provide pathways to nationally accredited courses. They are generally less hours than accredited courses and participants receive a certificate of participation. Courses are approved by the Victorian Government through the Department of Education (DET).

Our pre-accredited courses are delivered by appropriately qualified professional teachers and we welcome learners from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. See our brochure for more details: 2022 Course Brochure
