The company was founded by Eric Graham, who (at age 62) took an early retirement from university lecturing and began working for the Submarine Corporation reviewing training materials for the Collins Class submarines. During that time Eric and his wife Anne formed Education Training Advisory Services (ETAS). A few years later, in 1997, ETAS became one of the first private companies to become registered by the West Australian Government as a training organisation (RTO).
ETAS grew into a substantial private enterprise delivering high quality training to the WA mining industry amongst a range of other private companies and government departments. The company has also delivered training overseas in locations as diverse as Mongolia, China and Indonesia.
In 2007, Rob Graham (Eric and Anne’s son) returned to Perth following a career working in senior administrative roles in international schools. This included the prestigious Chinese International School, International School of Brussels and International School of Stavanger. Rob assumed the role as Managing Director of ETAS Group whilst concurrently engaging in an international education recruitment business as a senior associate.
In 2013 Rob formed Schrole. The company had two software products (Schrole Cover and Schrole Connect) designed to make life simpler for school administrators. At the time, Rob was not even aware he was entering the HR software market. By June 2017 Schrole listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) under the code SCL.
Today Schrole software is used by over 500 schools and a series of public and private hospitals. The company’s training services (formerly ETAS) continue to service the resources and government sectors as well as the international education market. The company still holds its original RTO number – RTO 1967.
Since signing up with Schrole we have been very impressed by the customer service, the modern-looking online platform, the absence of placement fees, and the various other Schrole products that we may be able to benefit from in the future. We have filled a number of positions this year with candidates from Schrole, during a particularly difficult recruitment year for us. The customer service is terrific. It seems that Schrole is leading the way in moving teacher recruitment into the 2020's.
