ManagemenT

Ellie Grozdanovska – National Contracts Manager / TLC Board Member

As well as previously working as a trainer / assessor and a Centre Director, Ellie began working in the training industry over 15 years ago in an administrative capacity. During her role she has managed the contractual administrative requirements of many State and National contracts and has a solid understanding of administering an RTO. Together with Teena, she established the QLD division of a Victorian based RTO in 2005 and has combined both her training and administration skills whenever required. Bringing her training knowledge to an Administration Managers role ensures she has the understanding and knowledge to provide excellent and accurate customer service and advice.

Shelley Higgs – National Training Manager

Shelley like many in TLC has come from a work history of both child care centre management, Centre Director and also Trainer / Assessor. Used to juggling busy schedules, staff and resources in these roles, Shelley was a perfect fit when TLC needed a manager to support our growing team of training consultants nationally. The role requires her to be informed of industry trends and changes across all TLC’s qualifications.

Nikki Holdsworth – National Enrolments Manager

Nikki joined the team in 2010 and began her career in the training industry as an administration assistant. Having come from a hospitality background, the RTO world was new to Nikki but she established her place on the team quickly and within a few years, moved into an Office Coordinators position. In 2016, Nikki took over the National Enrolments Managers position and is now coordinating TLC’s enrolment process across both NSW and QLD.

Training Consultants

All our Training Consultants are highly skilled and industry experienced with many having come from other training roles. Their paths have all crossed previously either through working together at other RTO’s or in previous roles as Centre Directors, Regional Managers, or Departmental Officers. They are multi skilled and are all assigned to a region in which they are all qualified and trained to offer most of TLC’s services, and all of the qualifications within their related industry area. We believe the relationship between trainer and client/student is extremely important and consistency and familiarity is crucial in the successful progression of the student.
