Kangan Institute is Victoria's largest TAFE having recently merged with Bendigo TAFE. Our campuses span from Echuca to the Docklands providing pre-apprentices with many more training options.
We are a major training provider for the automotive, health and nursing sectors as well as many trade areas. Kangan and Bendigo Institutes provide pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship courses in building and construction, plumbing, horticulture, hairdressing, hospitality, furnishing, electrical and engineering. We also have a strong presence in a range of industries such as fashion, business, finance, justice, security and childcare, aged care, disability and many other areas which can further support our students to fully achieve their potential.
As one of the state's largest providers of apprenticeship and traineeship training, we have developed strong relationships with many businesses. This benefits our students because industry-relevant training equips them with the skills and knowledge that employers seek and value and thus employ.
Our apprentices are provided with flexible and blended learning options because we believe that individuals have unique learning needs which we address through tailored learning programs. Learning options include various classroom 'block' training options, self-paced online learning, on-the-job training options or a combination of each.
Our courses range from basic certificate to diploma and advanced diploma levels, with pathways to over 25 university degrees. Our Skills Recognition program assesses prior knowledge and experience, awarding our students with the credits or qualification to match their existing skills.
We assess every student's entry level literacy and numeracy capability and match this against their course entry requirement. We then design and provide appropriate support mechanisms where needed. We do this because we want to ensure that every student achieves maximum benefit from their course, enjoys their experience and ends up with a Certificate of Completion in their chosen qualification.
With more than 80 years of experience in vocational education and training, Kangan Institute boast that we are a flexible, innovative and dynamic place of learning with a rich multicultural atmosphere. Our programs are delivered across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria.
