Australia's number one TAFE

The Gordon has been named the Australian Large Training Provider of the Year at the 2017 Australian Training Awards held in Canberra on Thursday 23 November.

This national honour is the most prestigious accolades in the vocational education and training (VET) sector.
Gordon CEO, Lisa Line, who accepted the award on behalf of the institute said, “we are delighted that we are Australia’s best large training provider. Our staff work tirelessly, with vigour and drive, to make the student experience as valuable and as rewarding as we can. In our commitment to meet industry’s needs, now and into the future, we make sure that our students graduate with the skills, experience and outcomes they need to thrive in their chosen career.”

“This award is the culmination of collective efforts at The Gordon. Thank you to all our staff, students and partners for making this outstanding achievement possible. This is a tremendously proud moment for all of us.”

The Gordon provides access and opportunity for individuals who want to forge a new life within a transformative economy and is a major partner in a number of initiatives focused on: employment; increasing educational attainment; industry demand; new materials, technology, and manufacturing processes; and emerging industries. 
This award caps off a stunning year for The Gordon, after winning the Victorian Large Provider of the Year, celebrating its 130th year of operation, the commencement of the Geelong Tech School development, and The Gordon Rejuvenation Project.

And now… we’re Number 1 in Australia!

The Gordon team are clearly delighted. Pictured with Gordon CEO, Lisa Line, in green.
