A story of success: The Deception Bay Life Long Learning Project
This resource has been developed as a way of documenting and sharing the journey of the Deception Bay Life Long Learning Project. It details the methodology, challenges and outstanding achievements of this project. Additionally, it aims to assist other researchers and communities endeavouring to undertake a similar initiative through sharing the knowledge and lessons learnt as a result of this project.
The Deception Bay Life Long Learning Project commenced in 2003 and concluded in 2006. The project was made possible through funding provided by Community Jobs Plan and Community Renewal.
The objective of this project was to stimulate community interest and achieve participation in life long learning by fostering pathways to further training, employment and personal development opportunities. This objective was achieved through the implementation of a diverse range of affordable, localised learning activities that enabled community members to gain new skills, contacts and confidence. The positive outcomes of this project are evident in the subsequent employment of several tutors and course participants, an increased skill and knowledge base in the Deception Bay community and greater community cohesion.
