Profiles and Testimonials

“I believe the ageing community deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and it’s an industry I have wanted to work in for a long time. When looking to reskill, there was no other place to consider.
The Gordon has a great reputation, and the course is recognised nationally.
The group classroom environment was an enjoyable way to learn, and you didn’t feel like you were on your own. You were always aware of the support you had from staff and other students.
I’m currently working at Bupa Barrabool where I completed work placement, and I assist residents with their daily living activities. In this industry, you need people skills, patience, compassion and time management. The Gordon prepared me for exactly what I do daily and gave me the best chance to gain employment in my field.”
