Our Partnership and Support

We are committed to supporting you with learning experience and resources that are inspiring, relevant and meaningful. You can start our courses when it suits you and team with our passionate, qualified and industry experienced facilitators and mentors through our eLearning, workshops and accredited training.

Welcome meeting 

We know it can feel overhelming when you first enrol and begin a new course. Once we have received your enrolment, we'll arrange a welcome meeting (by phone or zoom meeting if you live outside of Brisbane) with your personal mentor. In this welcome meeting, you'll gain access to and begin using our eLearning portal. This provides you with video tutorials, templates, helpful resources for each unit to guide your professional learning. We'll also overview your first assessment workbook with workplace projects, and show you the assessment guidance videos available to guide you.

We connect our students to:

  • video tutorials, resources, assessment guidance and a student forum through our eLearning portal
  • examples of best workplace practice in centres rated exceeding the NQS or rated excellent by ACECQA
  • opportunities to practise what you are learning
  • a personal industry experienced mentor

Your success and active engagement is achieved through:

  • mentoring and study support to inspire and support you throughout the course
  • engaging learning resources and experiences
  • flexible options to suit your needs in flexi or structured training plans
  • industry relevant and interactive learning through a workshop for each unit in the course
