Shepparton Access student Nathanael Jessup is pleased the disability support organisation has won a Victorian Learn Local award.
Shepparton Access has earned statewide recognition for its community-based training by winning a Victorian Learn Local award.
The awards celebrate outstanding achievements across more than 300 community-based learning organisations, educators and providers in Victoria.
Shepparton Access chief executive Wendy Shanks said the organisation was thrilled to be named a Learn Local Legend.
It promotes community inclusion for people with a broad range of disabilities, as well as their families and carers, by changing community culture and breaking down the barriers to inclusion.
‘‘Everyone at Shepparton Access has been very surprised and excited to receive the Learn Local Legend award,’’ Ms Shanks said.
‘‘Our education program is a team approach to supporting people with disability to increase their literacy and numeracy skills and to participate in work education programs which create pathways to employment in our local community.’’
State Member for Shepparton Jeanette Powell said the award was a wonderful acknowledgement of the outstanding contribution Shepparton Access had made to the learning sector.
‘‘Shepparton Access has played a key role in assisting many locals who have traditionally faced barriers to participating in education,’’ Mrs Powell said.
