Academies give students ‘real life’ training by placing them in industry for up to two days per week. They operate exactly the same as regular employees in this ‘no-frills’ approach to education. The remainder of the time, students study cores and elective modules in purpose-build training facilities based at Southern Cross Campus.
Current students can select from a range of Academies such as:
Academies are focused on career-based training and progression into the industry, whilst preserving the integrity of life-long learning and educational practices.
This approach enables students to develop career pathways with specific training to be ready for employment or sector-specific higher training opportunities. The benefits of Academy based learning are higher student engagement, authentic contexts and the development of work ethics through a practical training environment.
Agreements with several hospitality and trades partners, an Academies Manager, and customised on-site workbooks are just part of the make-up of the Academies.
Academies are not zoned or area-bound. All may enquire if they meet the above criteria.
