Partnerships and community engagement

We are enriched by our many community partnerships across the Albury-Wodonga region.

Encompassing sport, the arts, education and government, our partnerships improve student, research and community outcomes. Partnering with us consists of many forms – from collaborative events to sponsorships and educational programs.

Some of our significant community partner organisations include:

We also have significant long-term partnerships with local health organisations including Albury-Wodonga Health, Gateway Health, Northeast Health Wangaratta, Upper Murray Health and Community Services and Alpine Health. We also partner with various local primary and secondary schools.

Health partners

Our nursing and social work students are recognised for their strong practical knowledge, which is supported through placements and graduate positions with many of our local health and community organisations. These include:

Educational partners

Wodonga Institute of TAFE

La Trobe University and Wodonga TAFE  have a long history of providing educational pathways for students. Wodonga TAFE is located beside our campus, giving students access to both facilities and helping make transitions from TAFE to uni seamless. Wodonga TAFE's Careerdirect gives our students the opportunity to use their TAFE qualification as a stepping stone to uni.

Schools Partnerships Program

Our School Partnerships Program (SPP) works collaboratively with schools to raise awareness of higher education and inform career goals by providing access to activities that engage students and their school communities. Our partner schools include:

Year 11 Pathways to La Trobe

This unique educational program was piloted at our campus and has expanded to other regional campuses. Selected local year 11 students participate in a program with tailored workshops and resources. This helps them become independent learners in preparation for university study. Staff and current students mentor the students to gain a university offer.

Nexus program

The first of its kind, the Nexus program aims to recruit, prepare and graduate teachers in low socioeconomic schools in regional areas. You receive a salary as a teacher's aide while undertaking studies in the Masters of Teaching (Secondary). As a Nexus participant, you'll work locally at Wodonga Senior Secondary College while completing your studies.
