Solutions and services


We offer traineeships in the Certificate IV in Cyber Security (22603VIC), the Certificate III in Information Technology (ICT30120) and the Certificate IV in Information Technology (ICT40120). This is a great option for new starters beginning their career and for existing employees needing to upskill. Trainees will work towards the completion of a nationally recognised qualification while learning valuable skills at work and under the guidance of our experienced and specialist teachers.


Micro-credentials are short, highly-targeted courses designed to help employees improve specific skills. Micro-credentials are a cost-effective way of providing professional development to your staff to upskill them and keep them current.

Short courses

Our short courses are designed to give an introduction into a new area without the time and cost of a formal or full qualification. While our short courses aren't always accredited, they'll give you targeted skills that your employees can put into practise straight away.

Language and literacy

We offer a range of solutions to support learners with literacy and numeracy issues. We use the Basic Key Skills Builder (bksb) to determine reading and numeracy levels within the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF). The bksb tool identifies current working levels for English and maths, as well as gaps in the individual’s skills. For each skill gap, there is a learning resource that includes practical exercises and answers to help an individual find success. We also offer Foundation Skills programs that support individuals build their English language skills.

Workforce development planning

Workforce development planning ensures you have the right people in the right place at the right time. As part of our process we work with you to create a plan that outlines required training to fill skills and knowledge gaps, identifies future needs as your business changes and industry demands diversify, addresses downtime, turnover and recruitment costs, and improves staff retention and morale
