Education is about Learning and Doing

We're proud to announce our new partnership between Swinburne and G8 Education, one of Australia's leading providers of educational child care services. 

This partnership is unique within Australia and provides you with additional access to placements and graduate opportunities across the country with a group of established child care centres that see working in the early childhood education sector as a calling rather than purely a job.
