Our Mission

The ALCN exists so that Australia becomes a nation of connected, life-long learning communities

What does the ALCN do?

The ALCN leads advocacy to commonwealth and state governments, educational institutions, businesses and community organisations to grow life-long learning communities.

The ALCN facilitates the co-creation of knowledge and support for practitioners.
