The LGA’s Education and Training Service is excited to announce a new training collaboration with TAFE SA that will deliver face-to-face, online training and qualifications available in metropolitan and regional centres.


LGA President, Mayor Lorraine Rosenberg officially launched the training collaboration at the LGA’s Ordinary General Meeting in Adelaide on Friday 21 April 2017.


Through this exciting collaboration, the LGA’ s Education and Training Service will be able to grow its training delivery proposition by providing thousands of council staff and Elected Members the opportunity to access a far broader range of first-rate local government contextualised training programs, accessible in both metro and regional councils areas.


In line with our sector’s focus on professional development and continued improvement, the LGA is committed to collaborating with other levels of government. We are looking forward to growing this partnership with TAFE SA for the benefit of councils and the communities our sector  represents.
