We believe everyone deserves to create the very best lives for themselves, their families and their communities.

No matter who they are, where they live or the challenges and personal barriers they may face.

We’ve taken decades of successful on-the-ground community engagement and education approaches and created an accessible, digital place—The Learning Place.

At The Learning Place, we offer online resources that can be accessed anytime, anywhere by anyone. And we provide opportunities for individuals to connect online with a like-minded community of people who have similar interests, needs, hopes and aspirations.

Through our affiliate program, we also partner with local organisations to deliver trusted, accredited workshops, courses and deeper learning experiences that are relevant to their clients and communities.

The Learning Place approach

Whole-person, whole-of-life learning

We understand that people face multiple, complex barriers and personal challenges throughout their lives.

At The Learning Place, we see the whole person and their whole-of-life needs. And we provide learning and engagement experiences that range from practical tools to mindset and psychology-based resources to intensive courses and support.

Community wherever you are

The digital world has expanded our collective idea of what community can be. We are no longer constrained by geographic locations and lines on a map—community can exist between people who have shared interests, needs, identities and aspirations no matter where they live.

With The Learning Place, the learning, engagement and community come to you. We use technology to provide connection, support and education anytime, anywhere to anyone. And we continue to support locally delivered programs with cloud-based resources and courses for community partners right across Australia.

Engagement is a two-way street

Community engagement and development has never been about delivering services to people— but working with them to develop social and emotional wellbeing.

The Learning Place isn’t just a passive digital platform where individuals access education and resources. It’s a dynamic and evolving place that is guided by community needs and co-created with trusted experts and partners.

Safety, inclusion & belonging for all

We acknowledge that operating in a digital environment brings not only opportunity and access but risk and responsibility.

We work to make The Learning Place a safe, accessible and inclusive place for everyone— no matter their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, identity, culture, ability, age, class or religion.

We’re always looking for new & better ways

We look for emerging technologies and new ways to use the best of the digital world to meet community needs.

We source quality, relevant, evidence-based services, programs and support that we know will have a positive impact on our communities. And we make the most of digital technology to ensure lifelong learning and personal development for all.

Who we are

We are a community of educators, digital innovators, community and engagement experts, program managers, strategists, creatives, researchers, social workers, psychologists, partner organisations, recruitment consultants, and more.

We bring diverse expertise, perspectives, backgrounds and interests to The Learning Place but we are united in providing a safe and accessible place where all people can find quality courses, resources and information that are relevant to their lives. And where they can access the connection, community, education and support they need.

Our partners
