I have delivered Binnacle Programs in Fitness and First Aid at my current and previous school. The online student assessment within the Binnacle Lounge has made life so much easier and better for teachers like myself and my staff.

The instant feedback and ease of marking provided by the Binnacle Lounge and its online assessment platform has been instrumental in winning back more time to teach the content. Binnacle leads change!

As the VET manager, I have been associated with Binnacle for many years and have recently formed a partnering agreement with them to expand our VET offerings. It is great not having to look after the RTO management and audits of these courses. The team at Binnacle are committed to the continuous improvement of their programs through their resources and training. They are friendly and understanding, and are quick to respond to questions or issues that arise. Binnacle has been a great option for us and we look forward to working with them for many more years.

Our school added Binnacle’s Fast Track Certificate III in Business program to align with the changes to Senior Schooling and the introduction of the ATAR system. Wow! The program offers so much diversity and allows our students to experience vocational education in a fun and interactive way with project-based learning that is flexible, innovative and realistic.

Binnacle’s slogan of ‘allowing teachers to teach’ couldn’t be more accurate. Their work is exemplary, their staff are impeccably professional and they are continually looking at ways to improve their service to their customers. I cannot recommend Binnacle highly enough!

For the past 10 years, Binnacle has provided me with continuous support to allow me to focus on being a teacher. My life has been made so much easier not having to worry about the administrative and compliance burden that goes hand in hand with the VET in Schools space. Binnacle does it for you! 

Binnacle has assisted our school and students by identifying traineeship program opportunities, VET in Schools funding – and most recently – the benefit to be gained from Binnacle’s NRL-specific Sport and Recreation program. I congratulate Binnacle on their wonderful service to the teaching profession and the Fitness and Sport Industry as a whole.

Binnacle has been very supportive throughout the whole year and deserve to be commended. Every time I have required assistance they are quick to respond and willing to assist in any way possible.

Binnacle has been very supportive throughout the whole year and deserve to be commended. They have provided a professional and dynamic support base with which to establish the Fitness in Schools subject within our curriculum. Binnacle’s constant stream of support has made the implementation of this subject a smooth and stress-free transition for staff and admin like. As the coordinator of this subject, I cannot speak highly enough of the level of assistance that has been extended by Binnacle and its staff. Every time I have required assistance they are quick to respond and willing to assist in any way possible.
