EXCITING NEWS:FREE COURSES - YES! FREE!
Often, in informal situations, some community members provide feedback to the College that they would like to learn again but are anxious about what learning something may be like after having bad experiences at school. So, in an effort to give our community a “taste” of some of our courses, we are pleased to announce that starting next week, May 5, Bankstown Community Colleges will be offering 13 free short courses. As we expect these courses to be sold out waiting lists are now being taken for the following free* courses:
