    Stephanie Barber - Team Leader, Student Support, Batchelor

    Stephanie is a local member and friendly face of the Batchelor community. She is passionate about Indigenous Education, supporting students through their academic journey and their social and emotional wellbeing. Students travel to the Institute from many rural, remote and urban communities around Australia, and Stephanie understands the difficulties of leaving family and friends to persue further studies and fulfil their dreams.

    Stephanie has been a part of the Student Support team for 4 years, and brings the knowledge and skills gained as a graduate and a staff member to the position of Team Leader, and has watched Batchelor Institute become one of Australia’s significant Indigenous Education providers. Stephanie and the team provide a friendly and supportive environment for students on campus, and welcome students to call into the support team for a cuppa and to say hello.
    Kelly Johnsson - Student Recruitment Officer, Batchelor

    Since moving to the Territory 9 years ago, Kelly has been lucky enough to have the opportunity to live and work in remote Indigenous communities both in Central Australia and across the Top End. During this time she saw how Tertiary and Higher Education can give real opportunities to those who have chance to follow their learning journey. Whilst in Borroloola and Ramingining Kelly worked with the Community Development and Employment Program (CDEP) and got to see firsthand the positive outcomes of tertiary education for individuals living in remote communities.

    Since starting with the Institute Kelly has worked in the areas of Marketing, Strategic Services, Student Services and the VET Divisions. Using her knowledge of the Institute Kelly will endeavour to assist with your enquiries and help you to choose a course that right for you.
    Louisa Castle - Student Support Officer, Batchelor

    Louisa is a friendly and caring person, she is also a graduate of Batchelor College (now known as Batchelor Institute). Louisa has been with the Student Support team for 4 years and she enjoys working with the many students who come from all over Australia to attend their workshops here at Batchelor Institute. Louisa can assist you with completing your Centrelink Forms, Enrolment Forms and Scholarship forms and is happy to help with all other issues that may arise.

    Louisa's main focus is to support your social and emotional wellbeing whilst you are attending your workshop here on campus.
    Trish Cortes - Student Support Officer, Batchelor

    I was born and raised on Stapleton Station which originally included all of the Litchfield National Park prior to being opened to the public.

    To watch our BIITE students graduate is the ultimate feeling knowing we supported them through their stress and success of achieving their goals.

    My professional goal is to assist our BIITE students in striving and achieving success.

    Vicki Young - ITAS Coordinator, Batchelor

    I have been part of the Batchelor Institute for several years now and also have experience within the travel industry.

    I enjoy finding tutors for students, watch their progress and love it when I see students graduate. I am passionate about seeing students reach their academic goals, especially if we have set them up with tutors and have watched their journey. There is no shame in asking for a tutor. A tutor can still proof read assignments and help you strive for that higher grade, they can keep you focused on achieving your academic goals, and could just help you get that higher mark you deserve.

    I am a real people person who just love working with all different types of people from all walks of life.
