The team at Gold Coast Institute of Technology are proud to be a uniquely different RTO! We boast highly qualified, award winning, industry experienced, passionate trainers and administration staff who all believe in the vision of STUDENT FIRST FOCUS! First established in 2007, this RTO has always remained a locally owned and operated business. Petina Tieman came on board in July 2012, appointed as General Manager, and saw an opportunity to diversify the business, offering educational opportunities to cater not only for businesses, but to upskill individuals - both employed and unemployed. The new improved culture in the business, and methodologies now used in our student support services are rarely practised in today's vocational education services. In addition, we ensure our students earn their qualification by providing them with quality, extensively detailed and compliant resources for training and assessment. Gold Coast Institute of Technology now provides short courses and nationally recognised qualifications in Child Care, Hospitality, Workplace Health & Safety, Training & Assessment, Business & Management. We specialise in transforming Disadvantaged and Disengaged Youth into confident, empowered, motivated, engaged and improved young leaders ready to face the world of tomorrows. This includes homeless, self-harmers, drug and alcohol addicts, transgenders, Asperger's, ADHD, school drop outs, extreme literacy issues, expelled/excluded kids and more.... so if this is you and you WANT to change, come and see us and the difference we are making in 30-100 kids lives every month!
