How we teach


Our trainers

Trainers at Australian Academy are always chosen for their wealth of experience in their specialist industry. They are approachable, encouraging and supportive to all our students. Each trainer ensures that their course content is fully updated and fresh, so that student learning is fully relevant in real-life scenarios. Every trainer will also use only the best quality resources, both physical and digital, to make sure that every learner can fully connect with their learning experience.


How you’ll learn

Our campus in central Melbourne is home to all of our courses. With 20 students per class, classrooms are the beating heart of our college. Theoretical lectures and practical classes are delivered for at least 15 hours face to face and 5 hours online per week. Student participation is warmly encouraged, and we pride ourselves on creating a classroom environment that actively welcomes questions and queries, as well as the sharing of opinions. We offer opportunities for students to show their knowledge through practical activities, to take part in presentations as well as working with others to feel part of a team.




We believe in assessment that mimics the real scenario that students will face when they enter their chosen career. Therefore we ensure our assessment process is not only practical and interactive, but that they meet with their trainer for face-to-face assessment. They will be appraised on their individual research and reading tasks, simulated activities (based on real-work scenarios), interpersonal interactions as well as their Learner Resource Workbooks. A formative and summative assessment task will be the final check to measure learning and success.

The Australian Qualification Framework

What is the AQF?

The AQF (Australian Qualifications Framework) was created by the Australian Government and it upholds consistency of qualification value throughout the country. It ensures that a consistently high standard of education exists across all education institutions. The framework is structured as such that the qualifications follow a natural tiered progression. In this way, the AQF ensures that clear regulations are followed so that every qualification is crafted to meet the same standard and level. Due to this system which is nationally standardised, a clear and fair progression is followed by education institutions, so that students have a clearer pathway through their education and its various levels. If a student moves from one education provider to another, the value and level of their qualifications will always be of a standard that is accepted by all. As well as these full qualifications, the AQF will also offer a Statement of Attainment to reflect when a student achieves only a section of one qualification. For more information, see:
