WCEC is a community based organisation that is managed by a voluntary Committee of Management made up of people who live or work within the Hobsons Bay area.

We provide education and recreation programs for a diverse range of groups including; people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, unemployed, people with disabilities, sole parents, educationally disadvantaged and older adults. Classes and activities are open to all, and are held in a welcoming, warm and friendly environment.

We believe that all people have the right to a high quality, fair and affordable education. We seek to ensure that those who may have missed out in their previous education are given the opportunity to experience knowledge, language and learning as adults. We also offer a range of recreational classes.

For people who speak another language or come from another country and culture, learning the language of the country is very important. It is also important to understand the social practices and history of Australia. Our English as an Additional Language classes are a way for those from another country to learn about, and access the mainstream community.

The quality of our education programs is reflected in our recent VRQA Audit.  We had 100 percent compliance against all AQTF Condition and Standards, as well as all VRQA Guidlines.

People can learn about language and literacy while also gaining new knowledge about the community they live in.

All new students need to make an appointment and be interviewed to ensure they are placed in a suitable class.

Please contact Lynne Hewet on 9397 6168 for all course enquiries.
