As much as what we do, it’s about how we do it. Learning at Diamond Valley Learning Centre is more than a course or a certificate. Our vision is to Nurture Possibility and Stir Change. We do this by caring for our students’ individual needs and keeping our classes small and friendly. Our tutors value your individual experience, and students learn from one another. In this atmosphere of respect and encouragement, new possibilities and life-changing learning thrive. As people often say about courses at DVLC, It’s Fun!
Whatever your background, you will fit in. Our student group is diverse, including young adults, parents, workers, people with disabilities, older adults and people from around the world. DVLC is a thriving hub of activity where many people come to learn new skills, meet new people and complete courses that open exciting pathways for the future. You can join us in Greensborough, or explore the outreach programs we offer across the greater Melbourne area.
