LOT Fourteen

A group of our international students was recently given a private tour of Adelaide’s leading innovation hub LOT Fourteen. The tour also included a visit to Stone & Chalk who assist and mentor a large number of local start-ups. Students were also able to speak with two on-site start-ups; eBottli an SA Government-backed start-up founded in 2019 out of a passion for wine and IT and Add-Life Technologies who help people with their rehabilitation using emerging technologies. It was a wonderful opportunity for our students to see the incredible precinct as well as hear more about local organisations and potential internship opportunities.

Barossa Valley Tour

Our TAFE SA International students recently went on a tour of the Barossa Valley, one of Australia’s leading wine production and hospitality regions, situated an hour north of Adelaide. Stops included the Whispering Wall, the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company, Barossa Valley Brewing, Chateau Tanunda and the group rounded off the day with a visit to Mengler Hill Lookout.
