Welcome to the Directory of Adult & Community Learning, an initiative of the Lifelong Learning Council of QLD, a community group dedicated to promoting Adult and Community Education.

The benefits of further and continuing education to adults beyond school age are considerable, and are explained in greater detail on LLCQ's main website. Learning is the acquisition of knowledge and skill through study, and as such can be engaged in from the cradle to the grave. It is never too early or too late to learn!

To help promote Adult and Community learning in Queensland, Lifelong Learning (LLCQ) provides this free online Directory of Adult & Community Learning, that can be used as a resource by both Learners and Educators.

Do you wish to learn, or do you plan to teach? To proceed, please choose one of the following two options...

 I am an intending Student looking for a course to study.
 I am an Educator wishing to promote courses that I run.

As an intending student, the Directory website is a portal though which you can find courses and educators. It provides functions that help you to:-

  • Search for Courses relating to your field of interest. Use the 'Search Courses' link.
    • Search criteria include
      • course name (or part thereof) if known
      • keywords (study topics or course names)
      • location (eg., region or shire, suburb or town, postcode)
  • Search for Individuals or Organisations that run courses in Queensland. Use the 'Search Providers' link.
    • Search criteria include
      • Provider name (or part thereof) if known
      • keywords (study topics or course names)
      • location (eg., region or shire, suburb or town, postcode)

The information found in the Directory's database is a snapshot of the course as a whole. For more detailed information, the Directory provides contact information (phone, fax, email), and a link to the website of the course provider, where you can get more details. The directory is a first step that points you in the direction of Course providers, educators, tutors, coaches, teachers, etc ...

Please note: LLCQ does not endorse or guarantee the accuracy of information posted to this directory by other parties. Information about courses is provided by the Educator. Students should use the information in the Directory as a guide, and always check with the Provider to ascertain the accuracy of the information and whether it is current and up-to-date.

As an Educator the Directory provides another means of promoting your courses. You may have a website of your own from which intending students can get information. The Directory provides an alternative means. Learners may not know about you, or may not happen upon your website.

For Learning Providers, the Directory allows you to:

  • Register yourself as an Educator by creating a free account (username and password)
    • The types of providers we invite to contribute to the Directory are outlined in the "Statement: Adult and Community Learning In Queensland". Read Statement
    • If what you do fits with this statement, please add your information: (use the 'New User Register' link to establish your free account).
  • Add information that identifies you as a Learning provider (either as an individual or an organisation)
    • Who you are
    • Where you are located
    • What subjects, topics or skills you provide tuition or training in
    • How you can be contacted
  • List and describe the Courses you run

Any information that you add to the Directory can help promote the subjects and skills that you provide teaching, training or mentoring for

The Directory has the potential to assist you in promoting your services as an educator. To do this it is vital that the information provided is up-to-date. To ensure that the information remains current, and that the Directory as a resource is available to as many as possible, please do the following:-

  • Pass on the link on to any other people or Organisations that you know.
  • Encourage other Organisations and individual adult and community educators to enter their information and keep it up-to-date
