About Us

Fox Education and Consultancy is a Northern Territory owned and operated Registered Training Organisation specialising in education and training for preparation to work in the health, aged care, disability care and community sectors.  We offer professional development to those already working in the industry and pathways to career development. We service in urban, regional, remote areas across the NT and WA and, internationally in the Philippines. We pride ourselves on being professional, flexible, culturally safe and responsive in meeting the unique needs of these specialist sectors in some of Australia’s and the Philippines most diverse environments.

Educating and training with appropriate context in mind

We understand the unique challenges faced in remote and regional areas. Our courses are tailored to cover the critical issues faced by health and community care professionals working in communities, overseas and other regional environments. Course content is contextualised to meet the needs of the students and facilities, providing timely, relevant training to a culturally and geographically diverse clientele.

Learning with experienced educators

Being able to communicate with people is critical to a career in health and community services. Fox educators provide face to face learning enriched by practical experience, giving students the know-how they need to work in a challenging industry. Our educators are experts in their field, bringing current industry experience into the classroom. We can design and deliver on the job workplace training or off-site in our modern training facilities. 

Flexible delivery

We pride ourselves on being flexible to meet your needs. We teach in small groups and can adapt quickly in content and style to meet the learning needs of students and industry. While delivering accredited courses in hard to reach places, ask us to assess and/or deliver non-accredited courses while we’re on location. Or ask us about creating a mixed-mode delivery model where multimedia access replaces some of the face to face lectures.

Workplace assessments, professional development and tailored courses

We can identify and focus education and training to meet the unique needs of your workplace. This means your workers can start work sooner and can reduce the need for additional training. Use us to consult on the best way to scope and plan your total training needs including planning professional development programs for existing staff.

Health career pathways

Fox Education and Consultancy certificate courses are suitable for those seeking a career pathway into health and allied industries. Ask us which courses can build pathways to meet your career needs.

Fox consulting services

Fox Education and Consultancy consults to senior decision makers, providing strategic advice on the best way to deliver education and training needs. We hold membership to Territory and National professional networks including committee and board members and can therefore offer strategic evaluation services and best practise options. Let Fox assist in modernising systems and practices and use our experience in developing creative solutions to our stakeholders and the public. We deliver to federal, state and international contracts and maintain good relationships with Government and local, national and international organisations.

Accessible training facilities

We deliver training from our accredited industry training facilities in Darwin, Australia. We also offer training in your workplace or education facility.
