My name is Shelly Bengiat, I am the founder, director and CEO of Envirotech Education (‘Envirotech’). I am also a registered migration agent from 2005, MARN: 0532932.

We have also invested in various innovative partnerships to empower our students, such as the National Innovation Games, our Startup Innovation Hub, university credits and more.
Marine Habitat Conservation and Restoration – changing the world!
Envirotech recently registered the first worldwide intellectual property of VET accreditation in Marine Courses. This recent important milestone that awarded us national and international recognition, resulted in Envirotech having the ability to offer nationally accredited courses in Marine Habitat Conservation and Restoration under the VET standards, a project developed together with Australian, Israelis, Pilipino and Brazilian Marine Scientists.
The exciting outcome is the educational reform that will allow vocational training in Marine to both international students and Indigenous people, to become trained and accredited in the first National Accredited Courses in Marine Protection jobs, and creating a new localized and afforded local skilled workforce that hopefully generate demand to support our stressed ocean ecosystems.
Our Marine VET Standards aligns to national and international marine protection programs, including the Great Barrier Reef 2050 Long-term sustainability plan by creating marine job opportunities, as alternative to non-sustainable fishing and reducing professional marine employment costs.
Since we consider that the ecological problems are fundamentally social, spiritual and educational problem, our determination is to continue developing Envirotech unique courses to address these multiple social dimensional problems by research, consultation and collaboration with international leading educational institutions in these areas worldwide.
Investing in our social and ecological future
Environmental Management and Sustainability as a VET accreditation is an important milestone in creating practical vocational pathways to promote ecological accountability into mainstream training in both domestic and international markets.
We created an in-house business and project incubation program hosted by the Gold Coast Innovation Hub, and this is a practical managerial multidisciplinary capacity building program, that assists our international students to have a positive influence in various communities.
Export Market and Overseas Students: Challenges and big wins
We service our overseas recruitment networks by employing overseas representatives in Europe, Latin America, Brazil, Ukraine, Philippines and Israel. We make efforts to participate in international education, ecological and innovation leadership events. Last year we participated in Brazil in the opening of the Blue Economy, a 12 years project powered by the World Bank, and on international Ocean Day.
The target we have set for our second decade of operation is expansions to offshore accreditation and delivery under community outreach projects and setting offshore business research and development partnerships.
Innovation Hub, Games and Professional Work Outcomes
Our Innovation Hub is another challenge and win, creating a program that acts as projects incubator that supports multidisciplinary learning programs with different projects starting every five weeks and lasting over 6 months. We regularly participate in the National Innovation Games, an amazing initiative by the Honorable Minister Karen Andrews, we enjoy playing and winning so we can promote our students to get the best jobs in their field.
Sustainability and 2019 QLD Export Award
We couldn’t be more honored ending this year and decade as QLD winners of the Premier Sustainability Award. I am proud of being part of making such a positive footprint in the development and delivery of Environmental Management and Sustainability Courses, introducing these values across disciplines and of Marine Habitat Conservation and Restoration as the first National Marine Protection Australian VET accreditation.
The Gold Coast and Byron Bay
I have lived on the Gold Coast since 2003. I consider Byron Bay and the Gold Coast to be the most beautiful cities I have ever visited. It is more relaxed than other cities, there is focus on innovation, lifestyle, fun, beach, nature, and a youthful vibe. It’s a city with so much potential and amazing natural resources.
Land and water sustainability are emerging, and critical skill sets emerge internationally. Our passion toward environmental management, sustainability business technology and innovation continue to be our motivation to create and develop opportunities in Australia’s best locations.
