Our philosophy is framed on enhancing liberation, practicality, nurturing integrity, accountability, and creativity of learners. We believe in the power of education to transform lives.

We provide our students with the meaning and passion of education.

Student learning and teaching, research, and partnering with industry, are core to what we do, with purpose and determination. We empower people to learn and grow, we care deeply about the work we do, and we take pride in what we do.

Our staff. The most valuable enablers are our staff. Our staff is the enablers of our vision. Our staff’s great care, professional performance, and highest quality outcome have made us one of the most admired RTOs in West Melbourne, if not in greater Melbourne.

Our students. Our students also are our enablers. Our students see their studies in the context of the wider world. Their active participation in the training and assessment strategy and work placement and their ability to place their learning in context helps us to connect learners and industry. It also helps them to develop a sense of place and identity. We believe this is the main reason why our students call our campus their own.

Our organizational culture. At the heart of our success are our shared beliefs and attitudes that have been developed into organizational culture. Our culture captures the full value of our human resources, students, and industry partners.

We operate with a culture of shared sense of purpose that always puts students first. We have a fiduciary responsibility to our students to act with uncompromising integrity across all levels of students’ journeys. The mutual respect and relationship between our organization and the students are strong. The trust we have from our students is earned. We use the power of our culture to transform the lives of hundreds of learners and make their unique contributions to our diverse world
