Located in Melbourne’s south-east, Chisholm’s Frankston campus is fast becoming one of the most advanced and innovative training and skills institutes in the region. The Frankston Campus Master Plan will deliver new state-of-the-art education and teaching facilities, responding to growing local industry needs. The redesign of learning spaces and the ability to offer courses delivered in collaboration with industry provides a breadth of opportunities in education, employment, and skills for the Frankston area and is a major investment by the Victorian Government in the future of Chisholm, Frankston and Melbourne’s southeast region.

Stage 1 of the plan, the $85 million Frankston Learning and Innovation Precinct, was completed in July 2019, with the opening of buildings A and B. The state-of-the-art design of Buildings A and B delivers a range of courses and qualifications including nursing, allied health, early childhood education, hair and beauty, building and construction, plumbing, electrical and engineering.

Work commenced on Stage 2, the Frankston Campus Redevelopment Project, in April 2022. The two oldest buildings on the campus were demolished to make way for a three-storey learning facility on the southeast corner of the campus. Stage 2 will see the creation of a new $67.6 million multi-level facility that complements the Stage 1 development. The project will introduce new learning spaces dedicated to Community and Social Services, VCE/VCAL, Foundation College courses, IT and Cyber Security, along with bespoke spaces for Art and Design.

The high-performing, flexible teaching spaces in these new facilities will create greater capacity for Chisholm to respond to forecasted growth in other high-demand programs across the campus. Frankston campus will be transformed into a world-class training precinct to help thousands of locals get the skills they need for the jobs they want.
