PRACE strives to develop dynamic, responsive and innovative educational programs, teaching and learning
experiences. We aim to encourage the concept of lifelong learning and recognise the life experiences that all
people bring to the organisation.

I loved the course.. I enjoyed learning so much. I have completed previous courses. This course was far better delivery & content.
I have recommended the course to others & will continue to do so.
Imagine this; imagine coming to a school where everybody treats you the way you deserve to be treated. Attending PRACE has honestly changed my whole outlook on life. Being here has changed my future.
My time at PRACE has been a shifting point in my life. It has given me a great opportunity to finish my year 11 and 12 and has given me a chance to follow my dreams and become the successful person I’ve always wanted to be.
“The Teacher has been very thorough in delivering the course and I believe I have obtained the tools needed to advance in this career.”
” I have been a ‘stay-at-home’ mum for ten years but my last child is ready to start school next year so I thought it was time for me to update my skills and experience so that I could apply for work. At first I was nervous about going back into a learning environment – I felt uneducated and without skills. But after meeting the other learners I found out that I wasn’t the only one who felt this way and the teachers were very friendly and supportive. I am now completing my second computer course and have advanced on to learning PowerPoint and Excel. I also did a short course in AUSLAN (Australian Sign Language). All of this training will help when I start my Certificate III in Education Support later this year.”
“Learning Experience at PRACE was the best….”
