Training & Education

Taking the next step in your busy career is a significant challenge in today’s complex world. It should allow you opportunities to consider pathways into and out of professional development courses, offer the flexibility to learn at your own pace and time, align with your workplace/lifestyle commitments and be confident that you will attain the professional competencies needed to progress your career pathway. Our flexible courses are designed to help you become that professional educator. 

If you are working in Education & Training, Learning & Development or Leadership Development roles – then look no further! With participants drawn from industry, higher & further education and community sectors, our part-time blended learning courses are sure to meet your professional development goals.

These courses are offered at certificate, diploma, degree and masters levels. You can also choose from a range of 1-year special purpose continuing development courses which focus on current themes such as Change Management, Technology Enhanced Learning, and Leadership Development. 

Across our courses you can expect opportunities to develop your professional knowledge and skills through practical and meaningful work-based learning activities that are transferrable to your working environment. All of our courses are developed around continuous assessment and do not require participants to sit end of semester examinations.
