Learning Links

Learning Links is a register of people who are willing to share their skills with others. It is a simple, inexpensive way of connecting individuals who want to learn a particular skill for enjoyment, self-improvement and friendship with someone within the community who is willing to teach them.

Learning Links is a return to local and community-based learning – a bottom-up approach to growing a learning community. It is envisaged that as community capacity builds then Learning Links will become self-sustaining and contribute to the development of a learning culture in the Townsville region.
