Chisholm is one of the largest providers of education and training in Victoria. The Institute was named in 1998, in honour of Caroline Chisholm, the early Australian reformer and humanitarian. Chisholm's modern campuses in the southeast of Melbourne are at: Dandenong (two locations), Frankston, Berwick, Cranbourne, Mornington Peninsula and Bass Coast as well as two new facilities in the centre of Melbourne. Currently, Chisholm offers over 280 accredited, nationally recognised courses from certificates to bachelor degrees and graduate certificates - including its own degrees and partnership degrees with La Trobe University. It also runs approximately 140 short courses for work skills (industry compliance and skills development), as well as lifestyle (self-improvement, recreation and hobby). Courses are developed in consultation with industry, and are designed to meet both current and predicted skill shortages.
