On 8 February 2017, Ferrier Hodgson partners, George Georges and John Lindholm were appointed as joint and several Voluntary Administrators of Australian Careers Institute Pty Ltd and a number of associated entities (the Group) pursuant to a resolution of the Board of Directors.
Unfortunately, a Deed of Company Arrangement (DOCA) proposal has not been received. Therefore, the Administrators regret to advise that operations of the Sage Institute and WYN have ceased in all locations, effective 10 March 2017.
As a consequence, Sage Institute and WYN Institute are no longer taking any more enrolments and with the assistance of ACPET and the Department of Education we are supporting our current students to be placed in other training providers to teach out their current course, or if possible, have their fees re-credited (if they have a VET FEE HELP Loan) or refunded, (if they are a Fee for Service student). Further information for students is outlined in the Closure FAQ document below.
If you were studying with the Group, please contact the Independent Tertiary Education Council Australia (formerly the Australian Council of Private Education and Training) on 1300 421 017 between 9:00am to 5:00pm AEST from Monday to Friday, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a creditor, please contact the Liquidators on +61 3 8663 8613.
