Orana Education and Training Co-operative Ltd (OEC) is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation that has been part of western NSW since 1976. We were established in Dubbo in response to a need for training and education resources and facilities and have undertaken a wide range of projects ever since.

Our commitment is to championing communities in western NSW. We are dedicated to working with disadvantaged communities in the Orana region to service need, provide support and opportunities and develop sustainability.

Until September 2013, OEC was involved in the employment industry as a Jobs Services Australia provider in the Orana and Windamere regions. With OEC Employment staff now transitioned across to another employment provider, the Board of OEC is reconsidering its major activities. As we develop a new strategic plan in 2014, we will welcome new ideas and Board members with enthusiasm and drive who can help us achieve our objectives.
