About Get Set Education
Based in Queensland, our RTO specialises in flexible school-based training packages and nationally recognised business courses tailored for high school students.
Tailored for Teens
We exist to positively impact high school students — giving them direction now and well into the future.
We believe that with a little help, students can have the confidence to go after big, ambitious goals. When young people are taught to make good decisions, love learning, adapt to change, and love creating things… they will always benefit, grow, adapt, and add value to our world.

How We Started Get Set Education
We are a Queensland-based RTO that helps high school teachers equip their students with skills for life and a pathway into university or work.Discover our courses
Get Set Education was founded in 2017 by Queensland-based teacher, Kate Taylor.
As a teacher, Kate soon discovered that most Vocational Education and Training (VET) content taught in secondary schools wasn’t relevant or accessible to students. And she’d been frustrated by how high course prices led to many students missing out on valuable training opportunities. She saw the need for another option that would give students practical qualifications, relevant training, and great value for money.
Kate launched Get Set to help more students achieve their potential — beyond the traditional uni/TAFE/trades pathways. And to equip Australian teachers and high schools with the resources and support they need to offer these exciting new alternative pathways!
7+ years later, Get Set Education has helped hundreds of students across 20+ schools get set with nationally recognised qualifications, practical business skills, and a clear direction for their future career or studies. Best of all, we’re only just getting started!
