Learning 320X200Have you ever thought about the difference between education and learning? Education is said to be knowledge gained through teaching, while learning is knowledge gained through experience and adopting (or adapting) knowledge. Whichever one you are interested in, Woden has you covered.

Woden is home to 18 excellent schools; a mixture of public and private - preschools, primary, high schools and college. In the mix is one very special school which is recognised for its world-class work with children with disabilities and medical conditions. Malkara School has been helping children with special needs to engage with both education and the broader community for over 40 years and continues to be a bright light in the Woden community.

Early learning is also well serviced with 4 centres in the area. The Aspire Learning centre also located in Woden provides training and resources to those employed in the Children’s Education and Care sectors.

Learning comes in all manner of interesting forms including the Road Ready Centre in Phillip which provides driver education for everyone from first-time drivers, to refresher courses and specialist Non-English Speaking Background courses.
