Our fully qualified Trainers and Assessors possess a wide range of experience, and are caring and committed to their students. They cater for all learning styles and maintain a supportive relationship with their students, including additional assistance for students who require support in their learning.

We offer guidance, support and encouragement to enhance students’ learning experience so that you achieve positive outcomes.

Professional Development

We offer a mixed variety of Professional Development (PD) and customised workshops throughout the year to cater for the ever-changing needs of the community services sector. These workshops enable organisations to be informed of changes that occur and the training that can be provided to their organisation. If you require a professional development session for your staff, parents, committee or other associates, we will aim to customise the session that you are requesting using professional and well regarded facilitators who are experts in their fields.

Our variety of development opportunities are designed to meet both individual and group needs, accommodating a range of learning styles and knowledge start points.
