• Visitor Economy Training


    We know there's a skills shortage of 35,000 workers in the tourism industry across Victoria. Unless we invest in training today, we won't see any improvement in the future.


    Monarch Institute is proud to be a partner of the Victoria Tourism Industry Council, providing small business and leadership training for Victoria’s Visitor Economy, which encompasses traditional tourism-based businesses.


    Whether you're in a business which has grown, employed more staff, expanded product lines, sought export markets, or simply moving to bigger premises, our small business management courses will walk you through an in-depth analysis of your current business and help you develop core competency skills to further tap into the Victorian tourism industry.


    If it's leadership skills you're looking for, our Leadership & Management courses will equip you or your staff with real-world skills and knowledge.

    You’ll also have a qualification that’s accredited and recognised Australia-wide. Take on the business world, or use your skills in an exciting new role – it’s up to you.


  • Why are we different?

    It's training for the real world.

    Flexible learning

    Our simple, intuitive online learning platform allows you to study in your own time, at your own pace. Read a few pages on public transport. Try a quiz on your lunch break at work. Watch a video on the couch. Take on an assessment from the other side of the world. It’s up to you.

    Industry led training

    Courses have been developed by experts. Peak industry association heads, leading academics, and authors sit on our industry advisory committee. And you’ll be taught by leading professionals who are successful in their practice.

    Trainer support

    You'll get access to a dedicated team of trainers and support staff to guide you. If you need help, trainers are a phone call away, or you can pop into the office for a face to face chat. Plus you'll join the course Facebook group so you can share your experiences and meet other students along the way.

    Funding options

    You may be eligible for one of the government-funded courses at Monarch Institute. For those who are eligible, it’s a fantastic opportunity to upskill and gain a qualification at a fraction of the usual cost.

  • What are my options?


    You can take on full qualifications or you can choose the units or subjects that you need most. Either way, you're getting training in the skills that The Australia Skills Quality Authority has approved.

  • "Easy to follow, self paced"

    When my organisation offered Monarch’s Leadership and Management Advanced Diploma to their staff I immediately put in my expression of interest. I simply had no more time left in the week to take on anything new, but the way that Monarch has structured the course, it is easy to follow, self-paced and being online means I can fit it in to my busy life outside of mainstream hours. Support is only an email or phone call away and the response time to questions or issues is very quick.
