Job placement

We deliver great outcomes for our students as the provider of a premium education product. From 2010 through to 2018, Patrick Careers Academy (formerly St Patrick's Institute of Education) has achieved a 95-100% placement rate for Diploma graduates seeking full-time employment or choosing to continue on to university.


We are very well connected to major corporate organisations throughout Sydney, who have long appreciated the quality of our students by often confirming their employment before course completion.

Corporate sector job placement includes the legal, accounting, hospitality, medical, airlines, property management and banking sectors, among a host of confirmed employers of Patrick Careers Academy graduates.

Fee help

Most importantly, as a Registered Training Organisation with the Australian Government, our Diploma students are eligible for financial assistance through VET Student Loans.

Some of our courses are approved for NSW Government subsidised funding. See the course details for further information.

Thorough training

Our success rate is based on the high quality of our training and the attention to detail, including a corporate dress code, advice on personal styling and job-seeking skills.

Our philosophy

Patrick Careers Academy works within a framework of shared values that acknowledges individual differences, supports students' needs and nurtures the growth of the whole person in a caring atmosphere and learner-friendly environment.
