Building opportunities for lifelong learning in Sunbury

Hume City Council Mayor, Cr Geoff Porter and Member for Sunbury, Josh Bull MP toured the Hume Global Learning Centre - Sunbury site today, ahead of the facility opening in 2019.

Cr Porter said it was exciting to see the new $19 million Hume Global Learning Centre in Sunbury starting to take shape.

“Construction is progressing well and the Sunbury community will soon enjoy a vibrant and welcoming place,” Cr Porter said.

“The new Hume Global Learning Centre - Sunbury will provide formal and informal community spaces for residents and local communities to meet, allowing for private and organised study, library services, exhibitions and meeting and training opportunities.

“Once it opens its doors, this Centre will offer local residents, organisations and businesses a central hub where they can meet, learn and share experiences.

“While we build this new state-of-the-art facility, Hume City Council is still very much dedicated to bringing educational opportunities to Sunbury.

“In fact, this Wednesday 24 October the Sunbury session of the BIG Idea Day will be held, helping up-and-coming entrepreneurs identify how their skills and interests could be used to develop a successful business.”

At the Sunbury BIG Idea Day, participants will:

  • Take a look at the local market and discuss how to best develop ideas in this space
  • Identify who the client base will be, and how best to reach them
  • Work on a business model that will help achieve maximum revenue.

Following the BIG Idea series, people can supercharge their new and fledgling business ideas by taking part in the Hume Business Start Up Weekend this November.
