Executive Team

Mr Stephen Andrews (MEd, BEd)

Chief Executive Officer

I have worked within education for the past 37 years, initially in the secondary sector working in areas such as accreditation and registration, compliance and quality, and school review and development. This was followed by a brief period within the vocational sector as a manager, and more recently in higher education taking on the role of Deputy Head of Billy Blue College of Design, Quality and Risk Manager at Think Colleges, and Director of Academic Services at Torrens University Australia.

Throughout my career I have been passionate about the quality of the student experience and student outcomes, seeking and seizing opportunities for professional and organisation development, and building an amazing team to support these endeavours. I believe that as a leader, ‘service’ is the key to success. I recall the wise words of a previous manager, If service is beneath you, then leadership is beyond you.
