The College was first established over 20 years ago and has since provided the highest quality education to both domestic and international students. Our strength in vocational training is demonstrated by the many success stories we hear from past students about the jobs they have obtained in their chosen industries since graduating.

We are proud of our achievements and excited to be able to offer you quality education that is designed to meet your individual learning needs.

Our range of courses includes government-accredited courses for both international and domestic students ranging from Certificate to Advanced Diploma levels. The courses include areas of Business, Business Administration, Leadership and Management, Aged Care, Home and Community Care, Disability, Commercial Cookery and Hospitality. Our courses are all provided at our new premises at 44 Raymond Street, Bankstown. The Hospitality and Commercial Cookery classes are conducted in our own fully-equipped commercial kitchen and training restaurant on site.
