Our approach, as we partner with schools in a VET Auspice Arrangement, is to always focus on support, providing teachers and coordinators with industry-leading assessments and resources, expert Creative Industries knowledge and ongoing flexibility to suit the unique needs of secondary schools.

Since 2009, COSAMP has continued to grow our loyal community of partner schools, establishing a strong reputation across the sector as a specialist VET Music and Sound Production resource provider and reliable auspicing RTO. What sets COSAMP apart from its competitors is our genuine industry perspective.

Having shared a facility with Salt Studios, one of Melbourne’s most successful commercial recording studios, for over 10 years, we continue to collaborate closely with creative industries organisations remaining acutely aware of the latest trends and technologies, as well as the needs of tomorrow’s industry entrants.

Above all, we pride ourselves on our personalised approach with schools, offering easy-to-navigate platforms, streamlined and integrated systems for completing important RTO requirements and contextualised, engaging student materials that pave the pathway towards successful learner outcomes.
