Allara Learning celebrates its 10th anniversary

Founded in 2009, Allara Learning is a leading national vocational education and training provider. Allara Learning focuses on hospitality, retail, business & administration and leadership & management training.

Since its inception in 2009, Allara Learning has been providing nationally recognised qualifications to clients across Australia.

In April 2016 Allara Learning also began delivering pre-employment programs to disadvantaged job seekers, including the award-winning North Queensland Cowboys Dream, Believe, Achieve hospitality training program.

In August 2016 Allara Learning released its first eLearning courses. The interactive online courses help to streamline on-boarding, minimise compliance risk and up-skill employees. In September 2017 Allara Learning partnered with hospitality leader Merivale to develop a suite of micro-training videos. Shot on location in Merivale venues, the short ‘bite-sized’ training videos show staff best practice techniques and highlight how to avoid common injuries in the workplace.

Founder and CEO, Andrew Lewis said: “Our mission from the beginning was to make a real difference to businesses and individuals through education and training while at the same time offering the highest quality customer service”, Lewis, added: “While the business has expanded significantly over the last decade we haven’t strayed from this original mission, which we attribute to our growth and success.”

Allara Learning works collaboratively with its clients to provide tailored and innovative training solutions. In 2019 Allara Learning and Merivale launched The Merivale Apprenticeship School, a first of its kind chef apprenticeship programme led by one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs, Peter Doyle. Allara Learning also teamed with the Ville Resort-Casino in Townsville to launch a new hospitality training academy to service the North Queensland region.

Most recently, Allara Learning announced the launch of the new Journey to Success program in partnership with global industry leader, Marriott International. The new program aims to give Indigenous & disadvantaged youth the opportunity to launch a career in the hospitality industry.

Privately-owned Allara Learning has over 70 employees and is headquartered in Sydney with offices in Melbourne, Brisbane, Townsville and Cairns.

Allara Learning are proud to have trained over 90,000 students in the last decade.
