What Our Students Say 

Hear from our students about their experience training with Global Training Institute.


“I decided to get some formal qualifications because I’ve had many years of experience in leadership and management but without a formal qualification.

I was able to take advantage and get some funding for my qualification.

For anyone considering doing a course, I’d say absolutely go for it. It’s certainly been a great experience.”

Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management


“I was concerned coming into the diploma if I was going to be able to get it finished juggling other things as well.

The support I had was amazing. I’d like to thank Global training institute; without them, I don’t think I would have gotten my promotion.”

Diploma of Leadership and Management


“I was made redundant when the coronavirus hit Australia. So, I took advantage of the government subsidies available.

The trainers and staff are very professional and supportive. They gave me all the tools necessary to complete my studies.

The feeling now is unbelievable, I’m really proud of myself.”
