We offer a comprehensive consulting service advising on course design and development to meet the learning objectives and the needs of your organisation and learners.
I believe the success of any learning program or training system is attention and investment into quality. Engaging trainers that ‘know their stuff’, up to date resources that inspire thinking and policy frameworks that value training make a difference at program level right through to national training system level. As a product of Vocational Education and Training (VET) myself, my belief in the training sector translates to quality outcomes for any project we engage.
Cannot wait to hear from you!

National Course Accreditation
Accreditation with ASQA ensures that courses are nationally recognised and meet an established industry, enterprise, educational, legislative or community need.
Accredited courses are different to training package qualifications https://www.asqa.gov.au/course-accreditation. Accredited courses play an important role in Australia’s VET sector. They address the skills requirements for industry, enterprise and the community where these are not covered in nationally endorsed training packages. ASQA accredits courses that may be offered and delivered by registered training organisations (RTOs).
We have proven experience in developing accredited courses and preparing the submission for successful registration with ASQA
When do you need an nationally accredited course?
National Course Accreditation
Project lead on the design, development and registration of Certificate III in Remote Area Building Repairs and Maintenance. This course is currently being delivered in remote Northern Territory as a means of strengthening capacity and capability for remote communities to maintain housing conditions. The success of this course is evidenced by the initiated process to integrate the course into a national training package.
Training and assessment material for NT Corrections
Full suite of delivery, learner activities and work place assessments for 4 certificates delivered as part of the Sentence to a Job initiative. The initiative facilitated the employment of low-security prisoners while developing skills to increase likelihood of employment on release thereby reducing the incident of recidivism.
Procurement eLearning package for NTG staff
Training all NTG staff in the Principles of Procurement. The package is custom made for Territorians with particular considerations for ‘plain English’ and engaging diverse audience. This project is particularly important as Chief Minister Michael Gunner actions procurement reform in the NTG public sector.
Elected Member Training Package – Municipal - current project
Training package to increase elected member’s capabilities to work within their roles and responsibilities with particular focus on governance, strategic operations, community and council member consultation, financial literacy, decision making and managing conflict.
