Why get set

Start Making Career Moves Before You Graduate High School

Whether you’ve got big plans for the future or you’re not sure what you want to do yet, our school-based training and online courses can help you take the next step.

Alternative Pathways & Real Qualifications

Our courses can give you a headstart, whether you’re looking for an alternative pathway to uni, or you simply want to get qualified and job-ready (without heading down the traditional uni/TAFE/trades route). Graduate high school with a certificate or diploma that you can confidently display on your resume for future employers.

Open Doors to Opportunities

Whether you’re an aspiring business owner with an idea to change the world, you’re keen to climb the corporate ladder, or you have no clue what you want to do… we have the course for you. Open the door to job opportunities or get equipped to start your own business.

Flexible Study that Fits Your Schedule

We’ve designed our courses to be flexible for your busy schedule (and even fit in with full subject loads, extracurriculars, and a social life!). You can work in the classroom during school hours (maybe even drop your least favourite subject?) or do self-paced study in our online classroom. Plus, you can catch up in your own time with all resources available online.

Future-Proof Skills

If you don’t know what you want to do yet, that’s ok. Get set for a range of roles, including admin assistant/manager, office manager, EA, PA, sales assistant, events manager, receptionist, and even business ownership.

Great Value

With qualifications and training starting at $849, our courses are great value for money. You can get job-ready at a fraction of the cost of a trade, university degree, and many other courses.

Credits Towards ATAR

You can obtain a nationally recognised qualification while still at school. Plus, our alternative pathways can contribute to ATAR.

Designed for High Schools

Most courses are designed for adults already in the workforce, but our content is created specifically for high school students. It’s fun, it’s easy-to-navigate, we won’t talk down to you, and we’ll help you get to where you need to be once school finishes.

Get Job Ready

In a few short years, you’ll need to get a job. Before that, you’ll need practical skills and real-world experience in money, business, problem solving, planning, marketing, management, and more. Our courses teach you those exact skills, launching you (gently) into the world of business — in a way that makes sense to you.

Study Your Way

Our online option gives you an exciting chance to try learning your way, at your own pace. It might even be your new favourite way to learn — work when it suits you, go faster or slower, choose a distraction-free environment, and enjoy personal access to a trainer for all your questions. And if online study isn’t for you, that’s ok! We also facilitate courses in high school classrooms throughout South-East Queensland.

Common Questions for Schools & Teachers

Got a question you don’t see answered below or in our Knowledgebase? Contact us — we’ll be happy to help!

Who is Get Set?

Get Set Education is a QLD-based RTO that offers in-person and online training for secondary school students across Australia. Our business courses equip high school students with qualifications and skills for life. Learn more about us here.

What’s included with each course?

We provide everything you need to complete your qualification. Depending on which course you choose and how you access it (online or via your school classroom), you’ll get:

  • Access to our online learning platform
  • An experienced trainer with a wealth of business knowledge
  • Online support
  • Timetabled lessons
  • Learning materials
  • Templates
  • Assessments
  • Assessment calendars
  • Your nationally recognised qualification, mailed to your place of study

What’s the difference between your online courses and in-classroom courses?

We offer the same courses available in two flexible formats. The main difference is where you study and who teaches the course.

Our most popular option is our classroom-based training, delivered by teachers. This usually involves your business teacher guiding you through the course materials as part of your school’s VET program.

Alternatively our courses are also available as an online-only option. This involves our qualified trainers taking you through all the course materials and assessments online — and we’re always here for questions, support, and motivation when you need it!

Why choose Get Set Education’s courses over other training programs?

The biggest difference between our courses and other programs offered online or in secondary schools is that we’ve created them specifically for high school students. We know that our students don’t yet have much business or work experience — our content is relevant, engaging, relatable, and easy to understand.

Plus, we provide you with real life opportunities to learn. If you’re interested in becoming an entrepreneur or business owner one day, our programs are the perfect place to start. Unlike most other providers, our up-to-date content also includes practical guidance on business development and social media marketing.

Which schools do you work with?

We’re based in South-East Queensland, but can work with schools and students all over Australia.

How can I access your programs at my school?

If your school doesn’t yet offer Get Set Education’s programs and you’d like to study one of our courses in the classroom, contact us to let us know you’re interested. Alternatively, you can ask your school to reach out to us on 1300 446 448 or send us a message. We’ll work with your school to provide info on our programs, help them enrol you and any other interested students, and then provide access to the course materials.

How do I get started with an online course?

If you’d like to study a course online (not via your school), you can enrol with us directly. We’ll be in touch to confirm your acceptance.
