Unity College Australia

Introduction

Vision

Unity College Australia is a registered vocational tertiary college that seeks to impact lives through training people in a Christian environment for work, interest or ministry.

Mission

Our mission is to provide training which:
  • is relevant and of high quality
  • assists students to achieve excellence in the workplace
  • develops an awareness of others’ needs and skills to respond appropriately
  • promotes an appreciation of the contribution of Christian faith to self and society
  • fosters personal maturity and character development that leads to an ability to contribute effectively to society as a whole

Statement of Beliefs

Doctrinally, Unity College Australia is in the mainstream of the Christian church, with its commitment to the inspiration and authority of the Scriptures, the proclamation of the gospel and the sufficiency of Jesus Christ for all human needs. Our core beliefs are drawn from the traditional creeds of the church (Nicene and Apostles).

College Ethos

Unity College Australia is committed to delivering quality vocational education and training programs from a Christian perspective aimed at equipping people to effectively contribute to contemporary society.
Unity College Australia's programs strive for:
  • academic excellence (developing intellectual discipline and expertise for attaining and developing knowledge and skills, as well as providing a basis for further education),
  • vocational competency (practical skills and methods that relate to Christian ministry and/or work-related skills) and
  • character development - personal growth based on Christian character foundations.
Vocational outcomes range from service and leadership in Christian ministry to competent, professional service in the general community (e.g. information technology, community care, management and creative arts). Unity College Australia pursues a distinctly Christian philosophy of education based on principles that can be applied to all areas of life and work.
This includes Christian Ministry courses that enable students to apply the Christian life practically in serving others. The college’s general vocational courses are open to students from all nationalities, faiths and cultural backgrounds. Because it is trans-denominational and independent the College is in the position of being able to appeal to students from a wide cross-section of Christian streams.

Values

The initial values are applicable to all of our courses:
  • Welcoming: We seek to provide an environment which is welcoming to all students.
  • Relationship: Effectiveness in employment and ministry comes from strong relationships. We aim to develop strong relationships and lasting friendships among students, staff and with the community around us.
  • Relevance: The College seeks to be relevant and prophetic to our society. It has a contemporary focus and seeks to include a range of cultural expressions.
  • Excellence: The College aims for excellence, not for its own sake, but in our devotion to and for the sake of the glory of God being upheld in the church and in the wider community.
  • Marketplace: The College is committed to providing effective training for application in society’s workplaces and marketplaces.
  • Whole Person: We believe that training involves more than just acquiring knowledge and skills, and that character and spiritual development are important aspects of learning and personal growth.
The following values have particular application to Christian ministry courses:
  • Unity: The College is trans-denominational and open to all members of the body of Christ and wider community who subscribe to our ethos and values. We seek to serve the church and complement rather than duplicate activities undertaken by others.
  • The Kingdom: We desire for people to be committed to serving God’s kingdom whether through the church, the workplace or marketplace.
  • The Church: We encourage participation in local congregations of believers and the church as a whole.
  • Creativity: The College aims to reflect and nurture the creativity that God has given to us. We seek to explore Christian creative experience.
  • Ministry Skills: The College is committed to the development of effective ministry skills in students’ lives.
  • God Focused: We believe in the need to develop an ongoing intimate relationship with the Living God. This includes the development of a passion to better understand and apply God’s Word.
  • The Gospel: The College doctrinal basis is the established Christian creeds (Nicene, Apostles). On matters of faith, we seek unity in essentials and tolerance in the non-essentials.
  • Holy Spirit: We believe ministry is most effective when done under the empowering of the Holy Spirit. We desire to see God’s supernatural presence at work within and through the lives of all who come in contact with the college

History

Unity College was established in Canberra, Australia, in 1995 and has its foundations in grassroots ministry training for local churches. The name Unity College was chosen to reflect the unity between the churches in Canberra to pool their resources and provide training previously only afforded by larger churches in the capital cities.
In 1998 the college obtained its Registered Training Organisation (RTO) status and began delivering government accredited training with a particular emphasis on Christian ministry and creative arts. Since then the college has taken up a national focus to provide training in other centres around the country through partnerships.
From 2004 onwards, locations in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania have undertaken to teach across an expanded range of courses.
In recent years opportunities to also provide training internationally have emerged. The college has also recognized the need to train in the general community with a Christian worldview and has added a substantial number of courses with more general vocational outcomes to its scope of registration in recent years. In 2015 the college celebrated its 20th Anniversary and we look forward to continued growth and development during our 3rd decade of operation.
