Description

Batchelor Institute of Tertiary Education, formerly known as Batchelor College, began as a small annex of Kormilda College, then a residential school for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students on the outskirts of Darwin, providing short training programs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teacher aides and assistants in community schools.

Batchelor's vision is to develop a unique place of knowledge and skills, where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians can undertake journeys of learning for empowerment and advancement while strengthening identity.
