Connect ‘n’ Grow – an award-winning RTO - was founded in 2012 by Michael Gleadow (Teacher) and Dr Naomi Gleadow (General Practitioner) off the need to improve the health and well-being of students from Northern Australia. This has led to the National role out of Health and Community Services programs with wraparound support that presents routes into tertiary education and employment.

Connect ‘n’ Grow offers the dual Certificate II + Certificate III Health & Community Services programs on the CNG Hub, powered by the cutting edge Canvas Learner Management System. In 2017, a pilot program (dual Certificate II Health program) was successfully implemented in 14 schools across the State.

The TAE Academy is part of the IVET Group. Founded in 2011, IVET continues to be one of Australia’s leading RTO Groups specialising in a wide range of VET in school programs. Currently reaching over 15,000 VET in schools students nationally and working with 1,000 secondary school teachers annually, an opportunity was identified to tailor the TAE40116 - Certificate IV in Training & Assessment qualification specifically for school teachers. Designed by school teachers, for school teachers, the Certificate IV in Training & Assessment - Secondary School Teacher program takes into account the existing skills and knowledge of secondary school teachers, based on previous studies and teaching experience. The program places most emphasis on the elements associated with competency based training and assessment, and the Vocational Education Training quality framework, as opposed to foundational teaching and learning principles and methodologies. This is in recognition of the fact that teachers have learned and apply them on a daily basis.

All of TAE Academy’s programs are designed with their participants front-of-mind. Whilst particular attention is given to how we recognise previous skills and knowledge to reduce the total workload of the course, we do not compromise on quality or presume prior VET knowledge. Our programs incorporate flexible learning methods and our dedicated team of Trainers ensure participants are properly supported and guided through all coursework and learning. Given the importance of the TAE qualification to a large number of stakeholders, the TAE Academy believes its responsibility is to not only produce competent Certificate IV in Training and Assessment graduates, but extremely confident Vocational Education and Training Practitioners.
