Building on more than 25 years of experience

Founded in 1997 by Steve Helsby and Mark O’Shea, with the aim of providing high quality, reputable training and qualifications for the HSC sector. We think there’s always something new to learn, a chance to push yourself forward. In short, we really believe that every day is a school day. Learning with each other, and from each other. Now, nearly 25 years on, that’s been pretty much our philosophy in everything – to never stop learning together. Whether it’s seeing the world a different way while holidaying together with our families, or working with people to share our thoughts and help them excel.
