Take Another Look is the place for RTO Professional Development to help run your business which isn't about compliance
Running an RTO can be rewarding, fulfilling and inspiring.
BUT ....
it can also be demanding, overwhelming and challenging.
As you know, it takes more than a passion for training and meeting compliance to run a great RTO business.
So I'm wondering if this sounds familiar......
  • you're feeling overwhelmed with everything you have to do
  • you're struggling to get more enrolments
  • you wish you could help your team but there's no time
  • cashflow is a constant issue
  • your systems are complex and not working
Then you're in the right place so please read on to see how I can help you, your team and your RTO.
Hi I'm Tamara Simon - Australia's Most Experienced RTO Business Coach.
For over 25 years, I've seen too many people disenchanted with running and working at RTOs because they're rundown, overwhelmed and quite frankly 'over it'.
So I wrote the only business book for RTOs and developed professional development designed specifically for you to show you there is a better and easier way to run and grow a simple profitable RTO business.
There's no doubt everyone working in 'RTO Land' has a passion for training and wants to help students achieve their potential and get their dream job.
But unfortunately, too many RTOs are driven so much by compliance that they're actually running expensive hobbies instead of profitable businesses.
Which means staff are often feeling frustrated, overwhelmed and burnt out. And if you're running the RTO, instead of spending your day running the business and increasing enrolments; it's spent firefighting, fixing things and managing the team. 
Add to that, compliance is the thorn in your side, you're juggling too many things, there's no time to take a break and a smile is rarely seen.
And without the Strategy, Tools and Support to help you run the business aspects of an RTO, every day feels like Groundhog Day.
Now imagine if running your RTO and working at your RTO wasn't like this. 
Instead, it was an RTO where....
  • Only the right students kept coming through the door
  • Turnover, cashflow and profit were great
  • Everyone worked well together
  • Everyone knew what to do and how to do it
  • Simple procedures were always followed
  • Everyone only worked the hours they were paid for
  • Everyone only did the work they loved and were good at
  • Compliance wasn't an issue because everyone embraced it as just part of everything they did
And yes it is possible to have this Dream RTO. 

But after working with RTOs for the past 25 years, I know there are 5 KEY FACTORS which stops this being your RTO: Lack of TIME, CLARITY, SYSTEMS, RESOURCES and SUPPORT.
When I was running RTOs or working with them as a Compliance Consultant and Presenter, the only PD available was all focused on meeting compliance.  And whilst this is needed, there wasn't a Handbook focused on running the RTO including how to grow the business and manage the team. 
Thankfully, I had those skills (or learnt them) which is why I stopped being a Compliance Consultant and instead wrote The Five Little RTO Pigs Book, developed the RTO GROW Program and now do what I do.

What some of my clients say....
Sasha - RETS
It's great to bounce things off someone who knows exactly what's involved in running an RTO because you get the challenges and frustrations, yet provide simple solutions which actually work.

I get accountability and progress in 90 minutes.
My business would not have grown without your help and support.
Darrel - Bizmatrix
Thank you Tamara for waking me up.  Your guidance and assistance has been highly appreciated.  Your one idea brought substantial and ongoing income into our RTO business and it took me no more than 1 hour a day.

You're a specialist across several areas which is important to me and my RTO.
Sharyn - NIET
I don't need someone to actually watch over me, but I do need a confidante to talk to.. someone who understands the challenges of running an RTO but is outside of my RTO network. 

And that's you!  I can't thank you enough for your support to me and my team.
Gillian - Hailer Solutions
Tamara - you're a lifesaver! 

I feel so much better after talking to you.   Without you, I wouldn't be able to see things as clearly as I do now.  I truly thank you for that.  You've helped me put things in perspective.

Your work is invaluable.
Danielle - The Parramatta College
You were very generous with your resources and time! You spoke about useful tools and then just sent them to me with no conditions attached. 

You had a way of identifying my problem succinctly within my ramblings of what I was observing and not able to articulate directly myself.  You then suggested the next steps to kick off that were easy and simple to not only understand, but to implement.

You did this in an engaging and friendly way that made me feel OK about my part in the systems failures and not judge me for them.
Jodie - JMH Training and Compliance
Tamara gave me a business model which was even better than I had - so much simpler and cleaner.

I now have clarity and feel so much better after talking to you.

I couldn't wait to get off the phone and get to work!
