The Melton City Council Learning Directory provides a convenient, one stop solution for access to free and low cost learning programs and social activities throughout the City of Melton.

As an accredited UNESCO Learning City, the City of Melton is committed to providing access to lifelong learning programs and initiatives for all residents, no matter your age, ability or interest.

Lifelong Learning for Everyone

Lifelong learning refers to the ongoing pursuit of knowledge both inside and outside of formal education institutions. The learning activities you undertake, whether for professional or personal development, can enhance your social inclusion, employability, active citizenship, competitiveness, self-sustainability, adaptability, resilience, ability to take advantage of opportunities and more.

Programs, Social Groups & More

Throughout the year, the Melton Learning Directory offers many opportunities to undertake lifelong, life-wide and life-deep learning ventures through a variety of mediums including but not limited to one-off and recurring programs, community groups, social activities, classes, community events and forums and more.

Face to Face & Online

The way you prefer to learn can be as diverse as the community we live in. As such, the Melton Learning Directory delivers learning opportunities through both face to face programs, activities, events and more at Council’s Community Activity & Learning (CA&L) centres and libraries as well as online through our YouTube channel, Facebook page and more.

Courses and classes are very popular, so be sure to register your interest early.

Online Programs

The City of Melton Lifelong Learning Festival is returning from September 3 - 10! Council are delighted to bring you a curated program of free events, workshops and activities no matter your age, ability or interest. Learn more about the festival and our free community launch event via our website.
