Learn some new skills with a short course.


Short courses at The Gordon are a fantastic way to build on your existing skills or learn something new. With the advantage of a hands-on approach to learning and access to excellent facilities, The Gordon really is a great place to learn. For those who prefer self-paced learning, there are also more than 100 online short courses now added to the mix, so you can study whenever you like.

For the months of July and August, there’s a variety of creative short courses on offer, including Digital Imaging using Adobe Photoshop (starting 25 July), Special Occasion and Photographic Make-up (starting 2 August) and Hobby Welding -Sculpture (starting 9 August).

If you’re thinking about sitting the Victoria Police Education Entrance Examination, consider the Preparation for Police Entrance Examination course (Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 25 July). Designed to prepare you for the exam, it will improve your skills in essay writing, literacy and oral communication as well as numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning.

As well as creative courses, The Gordon runs dozens of Nationally Recognised Training short courses at the East Geelong Campus every month. Coming up we have Construction Induction Card (21 July or 4 August), Forklift Operation (25 July), Test and Tag Electrical Cord Connect and Cord Extensions (1 August), and Spotters Course (10 August), other dates and courses are available.
