Our History

Target Training (TT) was established in July 1999 by Louise Targett. After 10 years experience working for shopping centre landlords and tracking the KPIs of retailers both large and small, it was a natural progression in Louise’s career. TT was offered retailers and shopping centres a consulting service to identify gaps in performance and make recommendations for business growth.

TT soon formed an alliance with the Australian Retailers Association and Louise Targett was made responsible for delivering the highly acclaimed “Retailing with the GST” package to retail groups across Australia, prior to the new tax system coming into effect on 1 July 2000. During this time, Louise also developed a series of training manuals and learning guides, focusing on key business issues, which were sold to retail groups as workshop series and seminars.

After a lengthy process and audit by VETAB (Vocational Education Training and Accreditation Board), TT was successful in being recognised as a Registered Training Organisations (RTO) in September 2001.

Approval for funding of traineeships and apprenticeships by the Department of Education and Training followed in 2004, and a partnership forged with the National Retail Association QLD allowing services to be provided to both companies’ clients in NSW and QLD.

TT soon expanded its premises and grew through word of mouth and good will, securing contracts with some of the top 150 companies including Caltex Australia, Mirvac, Sigma Corporation and AMP Shopping Centres.

With the business now more than 6 years on (in 2005), well and truly established in the marketplace and steadily growing, it was time to turn to franchising in order to better establish the business on both a localised and national level. Contact us for details of your local Target Training office.
