Established by Arowana in 2017, EdventureCo has scaled rapidly to become a leading vocational and professional education and training (VPET) group with operations across Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia. It includes established and reputable college VPET brands in white-collar and blue-collar fields such as information technology and digital skills, negotiation training as well as building and construction. EdventureCo has trained just under 200,000 graduates over the last 25 years, providing them with skills and qualifications to commence their careers, upskill, or reskill.

EdventureCo’s mission is to equip students with relevant skills in a fast-changing world where jobs will be increasingly displaced by automation and robotics. In doing so, we help employers solve the problem of not being able to find suitably skilled employees. EdventureCo today has campuses across Australia, Southeast Asia, and New Zealand. These are in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Cannington, Brisbane, Salisbury, Canberra, Adelaide, Manila, Auckland, Wellington, and Christchurch. In addition, there are full online digital course delivery capabilities and offices in Singapore and Albury.

In an increasingly automated world, lifelong learning is essential. At EdventureCo, we help students on this journey.
