Why is The Gordon a great option for your students?


The Gordon delivers a huge range of accredited vocational courses. Students benefit from hands-on learning, industry experienced teachers and working on real-life projects. We pride ourselves on delivering work ready graduates that have the skills and confidence to thrive in the workforce.

Many of our advanced qualifications provide pathways to university. TAFE students typically arrive at university with study credits and hands-on skills that put them ahead of their classmates.
