Located on Australia's vibrant south coast, The Gordon Institute of TAFE is a technical and further education institute which offers top quality education across a wide range of employment-oriented programs.

The Gordon was established 135 years ago. Today, it provides training and education to more than 13,500 students each year in the wider Geelong area, located around 65 km southwest of Melbourne, the state capital of Victoria.

With a dedicated residence at the East Geelong campus, students at The Gordon benefit from an excellent combination of lifestyle, convenience, and affordability.

The institution focuses on hands-on practical training, teaching students versatile skills in a supportive and inclusive learning environment. Students are able to gain higher education qualifications at many levels, from professional certificates to diplomas and advanced diplomas. Work placements and industry experience is a key aspect of the course structure, giving students the opportunity to boost their resume and begin to build a professional profile before graduating.

Many graduates go on to secure competitive job roles in local and regional businesses, while others move on to further study. The Gordon's diplomas and advanced diplomas even give students credits towards undergraduate degrees at other universities.

Geelong is an ideal place to live and study, with a strong feeling of community and plenty of things for students to do. It is well connected to Melbourne by public transport services and to the Great Ocean Road, where adventurous students can discover the natural wonders of Australia's mountains, national parks, wineries and sandy beaches.

Teaching Quality

Teaching Quality

The Gordon is widely respected for providing high quality hands-on training, which produces well rounded employment-ready graduates.

It has a strong focus on practical training in a safe and inclusive learning environment. The average class size is just 12 students, which means that each individual gets more one-to-one contact time with their tutors, and a more personalised learning experience with more opportunities for structured feedback.

Students will also get to know their classmates and peers more thoroughly due to smaller classes and programmes, which include group projects where students can learn collaboratively. There are work placements and practical training in every programme, organised through the school itself, which help boost employment potential after completing the course. Gordon graduates have a higher graduate employment rate than the state and national average. For those wishing to move on to further academic study, many of the school's diplomas and advanced diplomas offer pathways to a number of universities in the state of Victoria and beyond.
