“We have used Community Child Care Co-Operative [now CELA] several times for our customised needs. We always find staff so attentive and flexible.

Nothing is too much for them. The knowledge of the trainers is second to none, they come from the sector and understand our needs, thank you!”


Virginia, North Ryde. In house Customised session, February 2017

While our training calendar is extensive, we know that sometimes you need a more targeted approach in your workplace. Our Learning and Development specialists can create a training program on any topic customised in consultation with you. You choose the date, location and topic and we will tailor the content to meet the needs of your team.


Our solutions are truly personalised. Sessions can be of any duration and linked to accredited training if required, so your staff can achieve recognition towards national qualifications e.g. management and leadership. We are flexible to your needs and can deliver learning and development through a combination of face-to-face, webinars, mentorship and workplace project work.


Our team work across Australia, wherever the need is identified, be it in Marrickville, Byron Bay, Dubbo, Darwin, Oodnadatta, Charleville or Adelaide. If you don’t see what you need on our calendar, just ask and we will design a program specifically for your service.
