About Us | Partners in Training

Our Story

Partners in Training Australia was established by its Director, Dot Spain in 2006 in a ‘mission’ to provide a more responsive and flexible training service to the people of Victoria, specializing in the Health and Community Services sector.

Dot was often exasperated by the delays in the system that could culminate in a loss of business opportunity, frustrations at the lack of responsiveness to meet client/student needs and the layers of internal procedures that led to lengthy time delays to provide relevant and accessible training solutions to students and industry.

This lack of opportunity for students to access relevant, affordable and assessable training was the impetus to building a responsive service. Partners in Training was created to provide training opportunities for individuals and clients that were not being adequately serviced by the VET sector in Victoria.

We are a family owned business that operates three campuses, two in regional Victoria (Gippsland and North East Victoria) and one in the heart of Melbourne. Each campus is equipped with a simulated laboratory a base to provide training to all corners of Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne. Our philosophy is to take the training to our students and clients that accommodates and works alongside their daily living pressures of work and family commitments.

We are passionate about providing people with options in life, and these options are gained through education. It is the key to independence, self-fulfillment and self-determination.

Partners in Training Australia provide training in Nursing, Aged Care, Early Childhood Education and Care and a wide range of Community Services qualifications.
