INFORMATION

Old Oak Academy PTY LTD is a private, independent business that focuses on the various aspects of education. Our main focus is on the student learning and excelling, focusing on professional development and aptitude.

 

The Institute is not a school and has no registration, and in no manner resembles a school.

 

This Education Management Institute has been designed and based around the emerging international markets surrounding education and the global push towards redesigning the spheres of learning, integrating technology and virtual learning.

 

The Curriculum Provider is the 'school' and has qualified teachers, and is registered with an Examinations Board. The accreditation is between external parties who are approved and accredited.

 

Old Oak's role is to guide, supervise, support, and monitor the Student in their learning process.

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read or write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.
