Sarina Russo Group

Message from Sarina

The best advice I've ever been given is ‘you can do it’. The best advice I can give to anyone is ‘if it is to be, it is up to me’.

Be passionate and believe in yourself—the rest will fall into place


In 1979, Sarina combined inspiration and desperation to open a small typing school with just nine students.  On graduation, she promised all the students jobs and she delivered.

The ability to execute is what the Sarina Russo brand stands for and why people have trusted it for over 38 years.

Today, the Sarina Russo Group employs over 1000 staff and is a global leader in education, employment and training.
