About The Gordon

Let us introduce ourselves

As one of the largest regional TAFEs in Victoria, The Gordon has been helping people gain real skills for real jobs for over 130 years. We pride ourselves on delivering a great range of options in vocational ‘hands-on’ training with one of the most comprehensive suites of courses in Western Victoria. 

Students can choose from hundreds of short courses and nationally accredited qualifications across apprenticeships, traineeships, certificates, diplomas, and advanced diplomas, which can lead you to a great career or create a pathway to University. 

From Geelong, Victoria, around Australia and overseas, thousands choose to study with us each year via flexible options including on-campus, full and part-time, off-campus, online, and in the workplace.

The Gordon also embraces the partnership model; working with secondary schools, universities, employers, and the community in programs that deliver real benefits. We are also forging strong international strategic partnerships, particularly in China and Indonesia. 

Location, Location, Location

The Gordon has several campuses. Two are located in Geelong, the largest regional city in Victoria and the gateway to the Bellarine Peninsula, Surf Coast and Otways regions, which means you can enjoy a fantastic lifestyle while you study or work. We also have three campuses in Werribee and a smaller trades campus in Hoppers Crossing.

Geelong offers the best of the city, country and coast with an affordable cost of living and great sense of community, plus we’re still close to Melbourne City and Ballarat – only one hour away by car, train or bus.
