Focus On Quality

At CAC, our prime focus is on delivering quality training and assessment. Once enrolled in one of our courses, students have embarked upon a promising career pathway that we will nurture with our Student Support Services and excellent teaching. We aim to help every student reach their educational goals.  

Following the completion of a course, many of our students choose to enhance their career prospects further by enrolling in other courses provided by CAC. We are proud that so many of our students remain with us as they work to gain further qualifications.

With a wealth of industry and teaching experience behind them, our training staff is highly qualified and well equipped to educate and inspire our students. They are regularly exposed to internal and external professional development opportunities and are encouraged to update their skills and knowledge and bring this to the classroom.

Our learning and assessment materials are specifically designed to meet industry standards and are compliant with and mapped against the training package descriptions found on www.training.gov.au. We use qualified and experienced curriculum writers to contextualise assessments based on training need analysis, specifically considering the reasonable adjustments for special students. Our curriculums are internally and externally validated by staff and industry bodies and undergo assessment validation from time-to-time to ensure authentic, sufficient, current and valid resources for learning.

Focus On Student Support

Student satisfaction is a key to CAC’s core vision, and we ensure that students are being provided end-to-end assistance from the moment they start the course. During their study, students are provided with student support services like extra tuition, peer learning and mentoring. Revised timelines for completing assessments and other services as per the individual learners’ circumstances will also be considered.

Students can gain further support through Student Welfare services. There is a designated Student Support Officer, whom they can meet with whenever they wish within college business hours. The Student Support Officer can provide necessary consultation and support and, if required, refer the student to external welfare services.

CAC adheres to all health and safety standards and conducts regular OHS audits to ensure a safe studying environment for all students.

We are passionate about providing high-quality courses for our students and whatever course you choose, we’ll be here to support you every step of the way.
