Kool Kids Training College (RTO 40636) today announced it has commenced a total rebuild on its recently purchased new headquarters at 106 Queen Street Southport. The location of the facility will be well known to Gold Coasters as it sits on the prime corner of Ferry and Queen Streets. With the building commencing this month it is scheduled to open this October.
The Best Training Facility in Early Childhood Education and Care Sector in Australia
Whilst inspecting the construction work this week, College Manager Sam Hendry said “we are planning for a time in the not to distant future when we can welcome students back into our training rooms – both domestic and international. This vision of delivering the best training facility in Early Childhood Education and Care sector in Australia is taking shape and our students will love it!”
The new KKTC Training Headquarters will feature:
- Total Training Room area of 153sqm
- Two state of the art technology equipped rooms with presenter tracking cameras so that lectures have an enhanced interactivity for those students offsite
- For students onsite there is 51sqm of collaborative meeting space for post lecture review sessions along with an alfresco area and onsite gym
- Short walk to the Scarborough Street Light Rail and diagonally opposite the $500 million Queens Street Village mega development at the old Gold Coast Hospital site.
Investment Represents our Confidence in Vocational Education and in Southport
The recent 2021 Muval Index which showed more Aussies are moving to Southport than any other area in Queensland. With increased migration there is a natural growth in the demand for childcare and by association training in the sector,” he said.
“This is an 8 year journey to where we are today. From a start up RTO we have come a long way and we now support hundreds of centres and thousands of students from Melbourne to Cairns and in between.”
“Our Mayor Tom Tate often talks about the Gold Coast as Australia’s Favourite Classroom and we firmly believe our State of the Art Classroom(s) will be a favourite for students wanting to embark on a career in Early Childhood Education and Care,” Sam said.
“COVID-19 has been a ‘gut punch’ to our sector and has seen many educational institutions hit the wall. We have had to pivot across all States where we train, notably during lockdowns but thankfully we are a fully Cloud based RTO and have a resilient cohort of students who have continued to front up and progress with their training regardless of the troubled waters COVID-19 presents.”
“We remain positive about the future and this investment is reflective of that confidence,” Sam said.
