Training Institute aims to Transform lives


The inspirational team at Broadmeadow-based Transformational Institute exists to educate, enrich and empower individuals and organisations throughout the region… and beyond.

The independent registered training body delivers quality full and part qualifications, as well as short courses, with flexible options to allow people to realise their dreams and achieve their full potential.

It also ensures excellence and high-level performance through experiential and reflective education, systemic development of professional competencies, use of real-life projects and groups as learning sites, continuous one-on-one mentoring and feedback if required.

“Quite simply, we aim to transform lives,” CEO Christine Chittenden said.

“We are very focused on business and participant outcomes.

“Transformational Institute runs programs designed to place our clients into employment.

“While educating students, we concurrently seek placements and then establish ‘taster’ style modules.

“We facilitate employer/employee meet and greet gatherings where companies showcase what they are looking for and allow our pupils to spend time with those they feel most aligned with.

“Transformational Institute supports the students from enrolment to employment and provides them with a multi-tiered support system that includes one-on-one feedback and mentorship.”

Ms Chittenden said the Hunter business prided itself on being as inclusive as possible.

“We adapt courses and learning styles to each student’s capabilities and needs,” she explained.

“Our experienced team members teach people with disabilities, speech impediments and language barriers.

“We also employ both Indigenous and non-Indigenous mentors, who are open-minded and respectful of our pupils and each other’s situations, mental and physical health and well-being.”

  • Transformational Institute is a finalist in the Hunter Region Business Excellence Awards, of which the Newcastle Weekly is a media partner
