The ConnectEd program delivers a range of free services to South Australian households. These include:
Community Education / Training for Community Workers
ConnectEd provides both Training for Community Workers and Community Education for community members.
Worker Training events include full day workshops, a package of half-day modules, or shorter 90 minute sessions. There is something for everyone. Information sessions for community members cover key messages in one or two 90 minute interactive workshops. Both experiences encourage lots of questions and discussion.
ConnectEd presents two kinds of education or training events – those that are open to everyone, and those that are offered exclusively to members of the hosting group.
- Open events are advertised on this website and are open to anyone. Check the Community Education and Training for Community Workers pages.
- Closed events are available to members of a particular group, or staff of a particular workplace, and attendance is by invitation only.
To host an event (open or closed) and arrange for a ConnectEd educator to present to your group or train your staff, Contact Us to talk about what you need.
ConnectEd utilities literacy educators can tailor sessions to the needs of attendees and can come to your group or workplace. We also deliver sessions via zoom. See more information here: ConnectEd on zoom.

It was an amazing training, I enjoyed it because it was flexible and gave us tons of useful information, not only for us but for clients.
