We are a not-for-profit Registered Training Organisation that aims to empower Richmond and Collingwood's most high-need adult learners, with a focus on migrant-background residents at the beginning of their education and vocational pathways.

“When I came here (Australia), I'm not talking English. For two years I can't talk. But now I improve my English a lot. I feel confident I can talk English anywhere, with anyone. And after, when I get more English, then I will get a nice job too!”
