Changes to delivery due to COVID-19
The Gordon will utilise online and audio-visual delivery methods to ensure students continue to learn and reach their study goals during isolation.
Students will be fully supported during this time.
Our teachers will be using online forums, webinars and video tutorials to ensure your study time is supported, engaging and informative.
Where ever possible, hands-on learning and assessments that require class attendance will be scheduled later in the year. Class sizes will be managed to ensure social distancing can be observed.
Work placements are dependent on the host employer and the regulating authority. Many placements will be delayed to later in the year. Further communication will be provided on a course by course basis.
Support services will continue to operate for students. Personal and career counselling will be available over the phone, and study support is now available online 24/7.
As one of the largest regional TAFEs in Victoria, The Gordon has been helping people gain real skills for real jobs for over 130 years. We pride ourselves on delivering a great range of options in vocational ‘hands-on’ training with one of the most comprehensive suites of courses in Western Victoria.
Students can choose from hundreds of short courses and nationally accredited qualifications across apprenticeships, traineeships, certificates, diplomas, and advanced diplomas, which can lead you to a great career or create a pathway to University.
From Geelong, Victoria, around Australia and overseas, thousands choose to study with us each year via flexible options including on-campus, full and part-time, off-campus, online, and in the workplace.
The Gordon also embraces the partnership model; working with secondary schools, universities, employers, and the community in programs that deliver real benefits. We are also forging strong international strategic partnerships, particularly in China and Indonesia.
The Gordon has four campuses. Two are located in Geelong, the largest regional city in Victoria and the gateway to the Bellarine Peninsula, Surf Coast and Otways regions, which means you can enjoy a fantastic lifestyle while you study or work. We also have one campus in Werribee and a smaller trades campus in Hoppers Crossing.
Geelong offers the best of the city, country and coast with an affordable cost of living and great sense of community, plus we’re still close to Melbourne City and Ballarat – only one hour away by car, train or bus.
