ACADEMY

Leading the way in quality
training and premium support
for the VET sector

An innovative solution for a dynamic industry

Since 2009, we have supported hundreds of RTOs with their compliance, quality and operational needs. Many RTO staff come from varied backgrounds in a range of industries and need guidance when it comes to understanding the VET regulatory context. Through direct client engagement, we understand common challenges and knowledge gaps that many RTO professionals face.

" As experienced RTO operators and consultants, the team at Eduworks Co. have a comprehensive understanding of the strategic elements essential for success. Our new solution aims to cut through the noise and misinformation to guide RTOs to success. "

Shashi Hodge, CEO

Our online portal offers a wide range of interactive, on-demand eLearning content, developed with over 260 years of combined industry experience across our team in consulting, management and instructional design in the VET sector. Many of the videos and resources available in the Academy have been written or developed by our CEO and Co-Founder, Shashi Hodge.

As we look forward to the industry-wide implementation of 2025 RTO Standards, our new consulting package add-ons (Startup, and Support & Management) provide an optional additional level of in-depth, specialised training and support to ensure the success of your RTO both now, and into the future.
