About Navitas

Navitas was founded in 1994 as a single entrepreneurial idea. It has since grown into one of the world’s largest learning organisations. Entrepreneurship is in our DNA, it’s what got us to where we are today and we believe it is the key to the future of education.

Navitas was an Australian education startup 25+ years ago and pioneered as the “Pathway” business model, now a global multi billion dollar industry. In 2014, Forbes ranked Navitas one of the world’s most innovative growth companies and today Navitas is a $2b education company serving more than 80,000 students in 50 cities.

Our values focus on quality above all else. Through our culture and 20+ years of experience we have crafted an approach that prioritises student outcomes, whilst delivering growth that ultimately generates an economic surplus for our investors. We believe that quality and growth are not incongruent if prioritised correctly. Ultimately our vision is one of trust; with students, parents, teachers, partners, industries and governments.
