General Education

Are you someone who didn’t finish secondary school and would really like to start studying, or maybe you need to improve your basic reading, writing and number skills. 

A General Education course is the perfect place to start your learning journey. Don’t worry if you don’t know what level to start at, we will assess your language and numeracy to ensure you are enrolled into the right General Education course for your current skill level. 
Our courses are run by engaging and supportive teaching staff who aim to improve your basic skills and give you the confidence to continue on your learning journey. The courses provide study in reading and writing, mathematics, oral communication, and general education skills. You will gain formal recognition for your study as well as being able to pathway to courses at The Gordon or secure employment. 
If you are hoping to undertake our Diploma of Nursing program but need to refresh your skills our Bridging into Nursing Studies (BINS) course is ideal with two intakes per year. We also offer some General Education units in Werribee to prepare you for the BINS course. If you are ready to study we recommend giving us a call to find out what course it the best fit for you.
