"A launch of the latest Community Colleges Australia report shows how NSW community education providers significantly over-perform on almost all tracked measures in reaching vulnerable and disadvantaged students.

The NSW Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education, the Hon Dr Geoff Lee MP, launched the Community Colleges Australia (CCA) report (PDF), on government-funded NSW students, at NSW Parliament House in the presence of 70 NSW MLCs and MLAs, CCA members and other guests. “Community colleges are and will continue to be an important part of post-secondary school education and occupy an essential place for people who cannot access the traditional RTO, TAFE or higher education system. The grassroots contact with local communities is so important in understanding what communities need, and being able to cater for individual learners with their own needs and expectations," Minister Lee said."
