With major organisations ...
ASQA is the national VET regulator under which we operate as a Registered Training Organisation, and under which our courses are accredited as nationally recognised training.
Cornerstone's accredited training courses are also approved by Centrelink for the purposes of making Youth Allowances, Austudy and ABStudy available to our students who are eligible to receive study benefits.
Cornerstone Community operates a primary school outside Dubbo at our Burrabadine Mission Community, with the support and oversight of these two peak bodies of independent and Christian schools sectors in NSW. Offering an integrated Christian approach for K-6 education, the school includes children from families within Cornerstone, but also caters for a growing number of other Dubbo children.
Swan Hill members and students are trained by ACCESS Ministries to teach Christian Religious Education in Victorian government schools. In the past 3 years 40 people from Swan Hill Cornerstone Community have been trained and have had extensive experience teaching CRE through the work of ACCESS Ministries.
SURRENDER exists to raise up the next generation of Christian young people to live the radical call of Jesus amongst the margins. Cornerstone is a hosting partner in SURRENDER along with groups like TEAR, Just Salvos, Urban Seed, the Baptist Union of Victoria and Jisas Wantaim. Members of Cornerstone have been joining in SURRENDER conferences over the past few years - making pizzas as well as lots of friends! Martin Watson is currently on the SURRENDER Council and Andrew and Rose Vincent will join the creative/operations team.

Selected students also attend our Leadership Camp at Swan Hill with potential leaders from other Christian Colleges including Plenty Valley, Ballarat, Heathdale and Chairo.
