Joel Gage - Founder and Director
When Upskilled opened for business in 2009, I had two ambitions for the company. The first was simple and selfish: I wanted to enjoy coming to work. To achieve this goal I decided to surround myself with people who are warm, positive, and inspired by a common purpose.
The purpose in question speaks to my second ambition: education for everyone. It is not simple, it is not selfish, but it’s what we exist to deliver.
To do so has meant embracing our own status as students of the learning process itself. Underpinning this status is a commitment to hearing what our stakeholders have to say, and responding with thoughtful energy
Thankfully, energy is never short supply around here. How could it be? Every day we partner with individuals all around Australia to enhance their career and help them live a more rewarding life.
Looking back, I can see that establishing Upskilled as one of the largest RTOs in the country while earning a reputation for excellence is a fine achievement. But it would never have been possible without the warm, positive, and united team that calls this company home
