Who we are

Shafston has been operating for 27 years, educating students in both English language and Vocational Courses. Shafston School of Business aims to provide all students with a professional delivery of educational services which will enhance their career competitiveness.

Former Inspire Education students.

Shafston International College acquired the assets of Inspire Education in late December, 2022. The student databases (Job Ready and Axcelerate) and the student management system (HUB) were included in this transaction and, as a result, a limited number of Shafston`s staff members have access to:

  • Personal information which includes student’s name, address, contact information and
  • Academic history and performance of each Student who was enrolled with Inspire Education.

    Shafston has agreed to approach Inspire Education students as part of the assets purchase with a view to offer continuity and completion of training courses to the students affected by the closure. Without having access to students’ enrolment details, Shafston International College would not be able to offer its services to students impacted by Inspire Education`s liquidation.

    Shafston has taken a highly cautious approach to students’ personal information and only students who have given consent via submission of an Expression of Interest Form will have their academic history assessed by a staff member.

    Any student who no longer wants to receive Shafston`s updates about the acquisition of Inspire Education can request to be removed from our mailing list by sending an email to inspireeducation@shafston.edu and our team will action the request immediately.
