The centre

One of our major strengths is our comprehensive facilities at the Institute of Professional Learning Centre. We can work with you to understand what you need for your event and then ensure you have everything available and ready to go. This includes room selection, audio/visual equipment, video conferencing, pens and pads, food and drink and lots more.

We also know that planning covers 90% but we are here on the day ready for that other 10% that crops up. Did someone forget their laptop and needs to access the internet? Need 20 copies of the agenda printed out in a hurry? Need a USB to copy some files? We are able to handle these emergencies so your facilitator can settle in and get ready.

If you are new to event planning we can help. Our experienced event manager can help with the planning – event registrations, participant kits and more.

Our rooms

At the Centre we have 8 rooms of various configurations and equipment. We can hold small groups of 10 up to large conferences of 250. When we discuss your needs we can organise the best option - single or multiple rooms. All rooms have state of the art audio/visual equipment.

Equipment

​All our equipment is onsite and installed so there are no last minute surprises. We boast a high tech environment with 8 data projectors, sound systems, video conferencing and more.

Data projectors – they are all built in and ready to go. Bring your laptop and plug it in ready to go. Even easier – bring a USB stick and use one of our laptops. We have large screen projection with clarity for all. Some rooms have dual projectors for improved viewing other rooms have additional TV screens so those in the back can see!

Audio equipment – for those events where you need to play a video and want quality sound, want music during work sessions or just have a fantastic song to motivate your team. Our sound systems are built in and ready to go.

Microphone – we have a wireless microphone for those larger groups.

Video Conferencing – our video conferencing allows you to bring others into the session as a speaker or a participant. Easy to setup and get going a perfect solution for remote staff or guest speakers.
