About the Village
A Partnership Approach to Learning
The Hume Global Learning Village (HGLV) network combines the collective resources of its 700+ membership of individuals and organisations to improve learning opportunities for the entire Hume community.
This innovative partnership promotes learning and links Hume City Council together with the key learning providers from across Hume including:
- Hume libraries
- Neighbourhood Houses and learning centres
- Education institutions
- Employment agencies
- Local businesses.
We are committed to enhancing life experiences, employment opportunities and contributions to the community by inspiring and facilitating the participation in lifelong learning to reduce disadvantage and improve quality of life in our community.

Learning Together Strategies
The work of the HGLV network is guided by the Learning Together strategies which have been developed by Council and the HGLV in partnership with our community.
The newly released Learning Together 2030.pdf (4339.85 kb) outlines and defines the three long term goals to be achieved by Council working together with the HGLV and the wider Hume community by 2030. These goals are:
- To embed a culture of learning within the Hume community
- To strengthen pathways to learning, employment and shared prosperity for the Hume community
- To strengthen the Hume Global Learning Village by expanding and consolidating the commitment of its partners through collaborative planning, community engagement and advocacy for learning.
The Learning Together 2030 strategy's associated Learning Together 3 Action Plan 2010-2013.pdf (916.92 kb) contains the shorter term key projects designed to achieve these goals.
This third generation strategy reflects the maturing of partnerships within the HGLV and positions 'learning' as a strategic driver in the development of Hume City, as it builds on the bold ambitions of Learning Together 1 and Learning Together 2 to further extend the impact of learning.
