Study With Us

Educate. Innovate.

That’s our motto at the Innovation Academy. If you’re a modern-day learner who wants to take control of your path and study at your own pace, then our courses are for you. Completely online and completely self-paced, you can study what you like, when you like and how you like.

Study one of our online Australian courses to upskill yourself personally or professionally and educate yourself so you can innovate for the future. You don’t have to be in Australia to take one of our courses – you can enrol from anywhere in the world. Although our content is based on the Australian curriculum – it is suitable for anyone wanting to upskill and those who may be interested in studying in Australia in the future.

Our courses have been designed with the following people in mind:

  • Anyone across the globe wanting to take a short online course to upskill, and grow personally or professionally in their area of interest or those looking at starting a career in a given area.
  • Australian trainers/assessors who want to refresh their training in their industry to demonstrate currency.
  • People across the globe who are interested in enrolling in an Australian college and completing a nationally recognised course in the future. As our courses mirror Australian-accredited content, you can save your transcripts. You may be able to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for some units that make up a certain qualification.

    Our Story

    The Innovation Academy was founded by Australian Vocational and Education and Training (VET) experts, Sally Tansley and Brooke Lombard. Sally and Brooke both have extensive experience in the education sector in Australia and together own one of Australia’s leading educational resource businesses, RTO Works, which offers consulting services and premium training and assessment resources to universities, colleges and TAFEs across Australia.

    Together, they have experience in the United Kingdom, Southern Africa and Australia including curriculum development, consulting and auditing in the education sector which puts them in a unique position to extend that knowledge outside of the VET sector to provide non-accredited short online courses that are relevant, engaging and mirror nationally recognised Australian training curriculum.
