Why study at Tauondi Aboriginal College?

Tauondi Aboriginal College offers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people the opportunity to study a wide range of courses designed to support them to acquire the skills and qualifications needed to gain employment and assist in the development of their communities.

All courses are developed collaboratively with individuals from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, and employer and industries.

Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have voiced the need for future generations to experience better employment prospects and have more autonomy over social, economic and political decision-making.

The staff at Tauondi Aboriginal College are committed to the principles of access and equity for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
