The Virtual Learning Network Community (VLNC) is a group of clusters and individuals that choose to operate as a collaborative network, utilising digital technologies in order to enhance the learning outcomes and opportunities for learners (students, teachers, school communities and educators).

We believe that future focused learning is paramount in the 21st century educational landscape and the learners are front and centre in all we do.
