With shared values and beliefs, Torrens University and genU Training have a meeting of minds that underpins their new partnership.
Creating an educational ecosystem is at the heart of the partnership with Torrens University, offering opportunities for both genU Training and Torrens University students to create pathways into new course, placements and employment opportunities in rapidly growing sectors.
Both institutions have an unyielding drive to support students in reaching their goals in environments where innovation and nurture coexist.
“We’re so excited to be able to present our students with the opportunity to take their vocational education achievements with genU Training into the University space with Torrens University. We support our students through their courses, underpinning their experiences with the focus on how their education will contribute to building inclusive communities” says Lisa Abbott, General Manager, Education and Training.
“We know that Torrens University, Australia’s fastest growing university, is the natural next step and we cannot wait to present the vast array of options to our graduate students” Lisa adds.
The partnership has already revealed an alignment in the focus on social enterprise, with genU subsidiary IPA, Australia’s only social enterprise recruitment agency forging activities with the Torrens University Social Enterprise Hub.
Paul Barbaro, Executive General Manager Recruitment, Employment and Training explains “Social impact should be at the forefront of how organisations make decisions and education environments are the perfect environment to cultivate this thinking, creating the catalyst for our future leaders to influence change”.
“The university welcomes our new partner genU Training and genU, supporting their commitment that education is within everybody’s reach,” Jerome Casteigt, Torrens University Australia Chief Commercial Officer.
“These activities are just the beginning of the endless possibilities these two organisations will share long into the future,” Jerome adds.
