About GeSS Education

After 15 plus years in the education industry, GeSS Education was founded in 2012 with one main purpose; to provide outstanding quality education to all students. Students need the right guidance, encouragement and student materials to enable successful learning. Therefore, for 5 years we focused on producing superior learner guides, student and teacher resources and compliant assessment for the vocational sector. Next goal was to develop an innovative learning management system that could bring this outstanding content to learners directly, either through online learning or as additional interactive materials to accompany classroom-based learning. Our GeSS LMS learning management system is designed from a combined 50+ years of education experts’ knowledge and experience with delivering courses to both domestic and international students. It is purposely designed for students that are looking for a pathway to either university or a career.

Now it is time for our next big adventure – to open our own campus on the Gold Coast. Our campus will house not only professional development workshops, but also vocational qualifications will be delivered on behalf of our partner RTOs to both domestic and international students. It will be the hub for education excellence on the Gold Coast in the perfect location of Australia Fair, Southport, overlooking the Broadwater and out towards Marina Mirage. Our centre is a 5 minutes’ walk to all conveniences; tram, major shopping outlets, movie cinemas, parklands – you could also easily walk to Surfers Paradise and enjoy the beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast.

Through this campus GeSS Education will achieve its major goal – to help students achieve their dreams by providing outstanding learning content via classroom based or online classes that will prepare them for either university or their career.
