Innovative, real-world learning

Our amazing team is passionate about inspiring, motivating and educating young people with love and care. We go out of our way to make sure learning is more than just a classroom experience. Our lecturers create first hand, real world, innovative challenges that give students practical skills, as well as theoretical knowledge.

In 2011 we started partnering with locally owned businesses. These ongoing collaborations inspire our students through relevant work experience, and prepare them for the working world.


ELMI has given me all the tools to become a successful graphic designer, they have helped me to become the young working women I am today.

When I was studying at ELMI, I enjoyed the diversity of the students in my class and being surrounded by creatives. It was completely different to school, I never liked school but I loved ELMI college. We were a tight knit class giving me a sense of home. I thought my lecturers were brilliant! All of them have their own flair and the knowledge they share with you goes beyond the syllabus but also personal experience. What I learnt at ELMI catapulted me into the working world where I could impress and go beyond the call of duty. I’d highly recommend them.

I am a first time student at ELMI College attending Saturday Computer Skills classes. I am enjoying the lectures; each and every session we are tasked to show what we have learned. I know more about computers now, and my errors are less. The basics are very important.
