Local Country Education Foundations

We have a network of over 40 local Country Education Foundations (CEFs) across Australia, all assisting their school-leavers to access further education and training – and investing in the future of their rural and regional communities. To access the Committee Members Centre for your foundation please click HERE.

Young Australians living in rural and regional areas are as bright and ambitious as those living in Australia’s major metropolitan centres.

The disadvantage of distance

However, the reality is that to shape a career or undertake further education, these young Australians must often leave home, travel and live in or closer to metropolitan centres. For many of them the financial, emotional and social obstacles are just too great and they are unable to leave home to take up further education or jobs.
