The classes are taught by an innovative group of progressively minded teachers dedicated to helping students become forward thinking young adults. The TAFE teachers have teaching and industry qualifications (they know their subject and how it relates to the modern working world) giving students an “insider's advantage” when they reach the workforce.

These facilities include a fully operational gym, fitness centre, hairdressing salon, beauty salon, commercial kitchens, and restaurant and construction workshops.
