Doors open after studying at Australis College

Posted on

You only have to turn on the news to realise finding a job in South Australia can be tough, especially outside of Adelaide and without a qualification but there is one strong willed woman from Mt Gambier, who is determined to take control of her destiny and the result – doors open after studying at Australis College.

Before Bianka Carson graduated with her first Diploma, finding employment was bleak. Ms Carson would put in job application after application only to receive no acknowledgement or the ‘sorry your application was not successful’ response. Bianka Crason successful Student from Australis College

Ms Carson said, “I decided that I would never be in the position of not having options for employment again.  So I enrolled into the Diploma of Community Services (Case Management) and started to study.”

Things are now changing for Ms Carson as she approaches completing her second Diploma and begins work as a volunteer to build up her work experience.

Ms Carson began her first Diploma in December 2015 and is now nearing completion of her second Diploma in Leisure and Health, and organisations are now showing an interest in Ms Carson as she approaches completion.

Ms Carson said, “I am so glad I chose to study at Australis College, the support that my trainers showed me is beyond comparison, they were only a phone call or email away, and with an out of hours mobile too. Wendy and her team are truly dedicated to me and so helpful.”

“I really can’t wait to start practicing my new job skills! A huge thank you to the Australis team; I really appreciate what you guys have done for me and the skills that I have learned,” she added.

Since writing this article, Ms Carson has decided to continue her study journey by undertaking a third Diploma in Counselling. When she completes this course, she will become only the third student at Australis College to complete three Diplomas.

Australis College Community Services and Counselling Head of Faculty Wendy Webber said, “Ms Carson is a true inspiration, she has embraced study and professional development, and has become highly sort after in her local community. It has been a pleasure to teach such a dedicated and passionate student. Ms Carson really is an example of how education can change your life for the better and open doors to new employment and career opportunities.”
