VISION AND MISSION STATEMENT
Mission: To provide pathways of opportunity
Vision: CEACA will be a vibrant centre of community learning.
CEACA stands for ‘Continuing Education and Arts Centre of Alexandra’ (pronounced “seeker”). We are a neighbourhood house, a Learn Local and a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) all rolled into one located in Alexandra within the Murrindindi Shire, 2 hours north east of Melbourne.
CEACA provides nationally recognised certificate courses through the Murrindindi Training Institute, community courses through the neighbourhood house and work based skills through the Learn Local organisation.
In 2012 CEACA partnered with Murrindindi Training Institute, a provider of industry driven training, to deliver nationally recognised certificate courses in the form of Certificate IV in Outdoor Recreation and Diploma in Outdoor Recreation. In 2014, the pair joined hands for further opportunities with more industry driven training courses to offer. From 2015, nationally recognised certificate courses will be delivered at the Old Alexandra Hospital on Cooper Street, with the Old Court House building on Downey Street, still hosting community courses and the neighbourhood house. CEACA welcomes and provides students of all abilities and ages from diverse backgrounds with the opportunity to study learn and develop skills in a safe and healthy, educational and social environment.
CEACA was founded in 1983 by Virginia Linton-Smith and Joan Broughan. They saw an empty building and had a vision of bringing Adult Education to Alexandra. Originally CEACA was situated in the “Frontier House” of the now Dame Pattie Menzies Centre until 1990 when CEACA moved to the current location, the old Alexandra Court House.
CEACA was an arts centre until 1992 when CEACA was first accredited as a Registered Training Organisation which allowed CEACA to bring nationally recognised certificate courses to the Murrindindi Shire enabling students to study locally.
