See what's happening across the ACE community. Courage can change the world – it really can.
We recently caught up with ACE graduates from across our College community to talk careers, motivation, pathways and ultimate goals. Check it out. What they have to say is refreshingly good stuff so we are sharing.
I have always been interested in Business and studied it in high school. I was offered a Certificate III Business traineeship with CONNECT and jumped at the chance. The opportunity to continue my studies through ACE after my initial Traineeship was the perfect outcome for me to continue furthering my career. I would say that having a wealth of knowledge can only help your future prospects and may help you decide exactly where you want to go in life. Currently I have been promoted to a higher-level position in my job and plan to stay for a long time, as I love what I do.
I remember overhearing someone talk about courses available at ACE in passing and it instantly caught my attention. I was at a complete loss of what to do career wise and restless with my day to day living, I was searching for something more, and I absolutely found that something more.
Do it, do it for yourself, you will not regret it. With my course now complete I’m applying for a job that I truly care about at the workplace of my dreams.
I had just come back from living in Paris as a Nanny for a few years and had previously worked in the Child Care industry as an Assistant with a Certificate 3.
The beautiful Deb (my ACE trainer) visited my Centre and I was ready to up-skill to the Diploma. Studying with ACE was the best decision I ever made. It gave me the flexibility to still work full time (I’m currently a Room Leader for a large Centre) but also have the support and help from a trainer when I needed it. You have nothing to loose! Just do it.
Certificate III in HACC
Diploma of Community Services
I was ready for a change and from my research I knew that disability and aged care were two industries that were growing rapidly. I was ready to re-skill to meet the job market and find a career, not just a job.
With my Diploma now complete I am a senior disability support worker, responsible for much of the training of new staff and have recently been asked to fill in for management. I am excited by the opportunities that lay ahead and proud to work in this industry.
