Welcome to the summer edition of the Centre for Adult Education (CAE) Short Course  Guide, the start of new, exciting courses and the return of long‑time favourites.

There is always lots happening in Melbourne during summer and plenty to inspire you to try your hand at a new skill, meet new people, and make the most of the extended daylight hours.

If trying something new is one of your New Year’s resolutions or if you want to shake up your well‑worn routine, CAE has a short course for you.

You could try one of our informative walking tours that will take you to hidden and not so hidden locations in and about Melbourne’s alleyways. This is a great way to rediscover our city, learn about its history and cultural hotspots, or brush up on your photography skills.

Summer is also a time for entertaining, so perhaps this year you would like to participate in a cooking class before inviting friends or family over to show off your newfound talents. You could explore the tastes and scents of a different culture or brush up on your dessert making abilities.

CAE is part of the Box Hill Institute Group and we are proud to have recently won the 2016 Australian Training Awards’ Large Training Provider of the Year award.

This award clearly acknowledges the professionalism and passion of our staff who make such a difference to the lives of so many.

There is an abundance of opportunities available at CAE and I encourage you to explore our guide and find something new to try. You might even like one of our “shortie” courses.

We look forward to seeing you.

CEO of Centre for Adult Education and Box Hill Institute
