I started my Teacher Aide course with the amazing team at Adapt Education only 8 months ago! I did a lot of research to find the perfect RTO and I am forever grateful to have found the Adapt team!
Throughout the course the team has been so professional and quick to provide me with any information or assistance I require.
My trainer’s care for her job and for me as her student was evident from day one. Her feedback on every unit was so informative. In addition, she has guided me on future school prospects. I honestly could not have asked for a better experience.
