About us

Learn about our history and our educational mission 

SPC first opened its doors in Cairns city in 2001 and never stopped growing. Against all odds moved to Kewarra Beach in 2011, a residential suburb north of Cairns to ensure students can focus their energy in developing their English skills in a quiet and peaceful location on a short bike ride from the beach.

ICQA has been in Brisbane for over 20 years and recently moved to a brand new location at 138, Albert Street, Brisbane to provide the best experience in an excellent location.

These two schools together formed SPC Group early in 2017. It does not matter if you are a beach lover or a city slicker, either way SPC Group can welcome you.

SPC is run by a group of nonconformists, people who don't settle and truthfully believe we can always achieve and conquer more. For this reason, SPC is a place that is constantly changing and renovating for a regular feeling of freshness.

We believe in quality education and our biggest aim is to become the best English teaching group in Australia. We work hard every day to provide the best environment to our students by investing in our teachers' development and school facilities. 

"We will keep working hard to make SPC the best learning environment, providing you with high quality education, and a safe overseas heaven."

Taka Kasahara, Director

Our team

 

SPC team consists of a group of former international students in Australia who understand each and every struggle of being overseas on a study abroad program. Our teachers have wide experience teaching in non-English speaking countries, they come from various parts of the world, have different accents, different backgrounds and different life experiences, but one thing they do have in common is their love for teaching and the ability to touch people’s lives through education.
