Why partnering with Foundation Education simply makes sense
As a schools coordinator or school principal, it can be challenging to balance a pre-determined curriculum with individual learning styles, particularly when not every student is suited to the traditional education structure.
To make this decision easier, we have listed below the direct benefits of partnering with Foundation Education and making your students’ career goals a reality.
Because above all, we care
Your students’ success is our priority. After all, that’s our entire reason for being here. We’re committed to quality education, helping young minds embrace their potential, and steering students on a path to career fulfilment. During their educational journey, we focus on the development of greater self-belief for each and every VET student. We want them to feel an enormous sense of accomplishment when they graduate with a nationally recognised qualification and succeed in their chosen workplace.
A brilliant report card amongst our peers
Foundation Education has a proven track record with our school partners. Our drive to support and guide our students towards success has resulted in an industry-leading graduation rate of 92% and a student satisfaction rate of 80%.
Advanced technology + cleverly applied intelligence = student satisfaction
The biggest battle in getting students to commit to completing a schools program during their senior school years is providing them with engaging learning resources. Learning resources should be fun, enjoyable and leave a lasting impression on both the student and their parents.
At Foundation Education, we’ve enlisted some of the best educational minds and combined their skills with powerful IT infrastructure to create an interactive and highly engaging online learning system. Our investment of time and money into building our unique platform is why our students remain committed to their course and go the distance to ultimately achieve their qualification, and graduate.
Complementary education keeps students in school
Statistics prove that students who undertake vocational training certificate courses while in high school are significantly more inclined to stay in school for longer. When students feel they are learning practical skills that can be applied to a specific career, they see that there is an employment outcome, and that means earning money! That’s some strong motivation to keep learning and do well at it.
Parents really appreciate that a schools program improves the likelihood of their child remaining at school – they often provide positive feedback. Comments about how much their child is enjoying their program and the value of the practical workplace skills they are learning are frequent and make our day!
Flexible course delivery
At Foundation Education, we pride ourselves on service and excellence, tailoring our delivery options and resources to suit the needs of your school. We are able to fit into your schedule, with one or two-year Auspice or online delivery.
Support for teachers
Foundation Education understands how time-consuming marking is. That is why 80% of course assessments are marked automatically by the system – reducing your marking time!
Our partner schools often find that due to the high quality of our resources, many lessons are self-explanatory, with minimal additional preparation required from teachers.
You’re never alone when you’re a Foundation Education Partner School. We will provide on-going support for you and your teachers every step of the way.
Why a Schools Program is the right choice for students
Foundation Education understands the daily challenge faced by Educators of balancing pre-determined curriculum with individual learning styles. We understand that not every student is suited to a traditional course structure, so we strive to provide unique and valuable opportunities to keep students motivated.
At Foundation Education, our Schools Program packages are focused on giving your students the best start to their career. We’re dedicated to helping your students reach their potential and we believe that the best way to do this is by providing students with the real life tools and resources they need to succeed in an increasingly competitive employment market.
The Foundation Education promise
Our Schools Program packages are specifically designed for growing minds, motivating students to work hard with engaging, interesting and dynamic subjects and learning outcomes.
Impart practical skills
Whether a student has their sights set on a certain career or not, our Schools Programs are an opportunity for them to experience a range of industries before making a decision. Our Schools Programs teach students invaluable skills directly connected to their chosen field, in a flexible and fun learning environment.
Create real employment opportunities
With high graduation rates, we are known for delivering on our commitment to our students’ success.
Provide a pathway to university

We’re with you every step of the way
Great teachers, like you, are key to the success of students. Foundation Education is here to support you, with a four-tiered support system:
- Quality Resources – from targeted course content to cutting edge teaching methods, you’ll have access to a wide range of resources to help your students navigate the beneficial experience of learning with us.
- Reporting – our courses and assessments are marked automatically by our system – reducing your marking time. We submit student reports detailing the outcomes of each student – gauge their performance, chart their strengths and help them overcome any identified obstacles.
- Student Contact – if a student, for any reason, falls behind on their coursework, we will provide the required support and advice to ensure they get back on track with their goals.
