Flannery Centre

Skillset's Flannery Centre is the building through which Skillset offers a range of sustainability focused initiatives that look to support local business and individuals in adopting the tools they need to work and live in a more sustainable way.

In the same way that Skillset provides assistance with staffing and training, we’re here to help you find opportunities in our ever-changing and resource-constrained world.

With the help of the Federal Government, Skillset has invested in constructing a world-class green skills and sustainability centre in Bathurst. It is located in the Education Precinct in Panorama Ave, Bathurst and aims to be a model of community response to climate change and sustainability-related issues.

Named ‘The Flannery Centre’ after Tim Flannery - renowned environmental advocate and 2007 Australian of the Year, the building is designed to offer state-of-the-art training facilities.

Through the Flannery Centre, Skillset offers courses, services and reputable information around living and working sustainably. The mission of the Centre is to inspire, lead and learn our way to a positive future.


If you’re interested in the future of the planet and want to learn more about environmental issues and new sustainability initiatives, then feel free to have a look around. Check out our Sustainability Training courses or have a read of some of the key reports we've based our decisions on.

The sustainability activities at The Flannery Centre are themed into 4 pillars:
the Built Environment, Natural Landscapes, Business Practice and People. There are also training qualifications and short courses available.
