History of Stanley College

Stanley International College Pty Ltd was founded as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO). From its first campus in Beaufort Street, Perth, the College attracted students for its courses in cookery and hospitality.


The College began to diversify, offering a business course and attracting a more diverse cohort of students.


One of the College’s founders, Mr. Dhyan Singh, and its CEO, Mr. Alberto Tassone, who had joined in 2009, acquired all its shares. The College began another growth phase by moving to a larger and more amenable campus in James Street, Northbridge.

Stanley College opened Kalao World Cuisine, a fully operational restaurant business staffed by the College’s Commercial Cookery and Hospitality, to provide hands-on experience.

Stanley College was approved to provide training on behalf of the WA State Government.


Stanley College commenced operations at a third campus in Mirrabooka, to accommodate the high demand from local students living in the lower socioeconomic demographic around Mirrabooka and to serve the vocational education and training needs of students supported by government programs such as Priority Industry Training.


After providing funded training since 2011 Stanley College was appointed to Preferred Provider Panel status by the Department of Training and Workplace Development (DTWD).


An experienced RTO manager, Vickie Powell, was appointed as Compliance Manager. By the time Vickie was appointed General Manager in 2014, Stanley College had opened a second campus in Francis Street, Perth, and launched its English Language school. By this time, it had added courses in Aged Care, Early Childhood Education and Care, and Security.


The College acquired a three-storey office building in Outram Street, West Perth, with the intention to develop it as a flagship campus.

Stanley College began delivering work-based training for our Commercial Cookery courses at the world-class facilities of the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.


The conversion of the West Perth building from a Class 5 office building to a purpose-built Class 9b educational facility was completed. Stanley College has become one of Western Australia’s largest and most awarded colleges, with 29 nationally accredited courses on scope.


Stanley College was registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) as an approved Higher Education Provider (Provider Number PRV14050), and registered on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) to offer a Bachelor of Business degree (CRICOS Course Code: 0100538) to international students in Australia on a student visa.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Stanley College acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders, past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
