We believe that by giving people the right tools, mindset and resilience we can not only improve their learning outcomes but also have a positive flow throughout their lives.
Imagine a world where all students start their higher education studies understanding HOW and WHAT to learn, feeling CONFIDENT and MOTIVATED, ENGAGED and RESILIENT when it comes to setbacks in their studies and in their personal lives. Imagine how they can then empower and build their communities….
Closing the Gap
We believe that everyone has a responsiblity to help close the gap between Indignous and Non-indigenous peoples within a decade. We are committed to making a difference through our area of expertise – adult education.
This is one of the reasons why we reinvest 50% of our profits into Indigenous education initiatives, in collaboration or consultation with Indigenous communities and elder approved representatives.

Learn Grow Become…
We believe that everyone has amazing potential.
And yet… so many students, particularly those from disadvantaged cohorts, fail to realise their dreams at higher education, with less than 50% of Indigenous students graduating within 10 years.
When the idea for our Learn2Learn program first took shape back in 2017, we realised….
-> If we taught people to become effective learners, then they can make the most of any learning opportunity… regardless of the skill and interest of the instructor.
-> If we teach them to become more proactive, engaged and genuinely interested in what they are learning… reaching graduation will mean more than just a certificate, and learning continues into the workplace.
-> And if the learning capability of our staff and students actually match what is assumed and expected of them…. everyone will be more confident and operating from a more equitable place.
Fast forward to 2019 and our first pilot research project in collaboration with CQUniversity. Hearing directly from the student participants how much the program changed and reshaped their learning – and themselves, validated our belief in the program.
Students shared how the program had helped them retain knowledge beyond the end of term, improve their grades, help them feel more confident in themselves and their studies, improve their mental well-being and even take steps to make significant life changes to improve their ability to achieve success in their studies.
It really did change lives AND change learning outcomes!
