“I feel so accomplished to have completed this course”

Posted on

Prior to enrolling with Australis College I was working for Centrelink and decided I did not want to work in a call centre for the rest of my life. I wanted to be able to do something that really made a difference.

I chose to study with Australis College because they offered flexible online options. I chose to do a Diploma of Community Services (working with Families and Young People.)

I was really passionate about this area as I felt that people, especially young people, needed more support and advocacy.

I found the learning experience with Australis to be excellent. The tutors and trainers were always available when needed and the learning resources were really easy to use and informative.

The highlight of studying at Australis College for me though was definitely my work placement.

I was dreading doing placement but I was lucky enough to be able to work with a fantastic organisation – The Anglicare Youth Support Program. At the end of my placement I was lucky enough to gain employment with the Youth Support Program as an Outreach Worker – my dream job! For those thinking about studying with Australis I would say take the leap and do it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I feel so accomplished to have completed this course and want to thank Australis College for helping make my dreams a reality.
