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. Click open the latest Raise the Bar view-book and get ready to be inspired!
My background is in finance, but I decided on a complete career turnaround. The College in Lismore gave me the perfect opportunity to upgrade, improve my skills and gain my Certificate III. I knew from the first day that I was going to get the training I needed. The trainer was fantastic, she made perfect sense.
This new career path means I can contribute something valuable to the community I live in. The care sector is definitely a growth field. Within four weeks I secured as much work as I needed. I’m part way through my Certificate IV in Aged Care and will be looking to combine my Degree in Music into my work in the Care sector as I go forward.
Four ACE students commence their vocational placement with us and we are happy to announce that two students have gained regular employment with our team.
These ACE graduates have brought with them great knowledge and wonderful skills and are proving to be very caring and dedicated early childhood educators. I have no hesitation in recommending ACE to other industry partners.
Thank you for your dedication to training and commitment to quality education and care.
Diploma Children’s Services
A change in career was on my mind. I signed-up for a full time traineeship whilst doing my Certificate lll and Diploma; this meant I was able to gain hands on experience. I realised quite quickly how much I enjoyed working alongside children of all ages and their families and the local community.
Now I’m completing my Bachelor of Education (birth to five years) at university. With my Diploma through ACE already included within my bachelor (recognition of prior learning), I am aiming to finish university within two years.
Go out and start your study!
You only live once. In the last five years I have completed my Certificate and Diploma in Children’s Services with ACE and I am halfway through a university degree. This decision has led me to travel the world.
CERTIFICATE III HOME AND COMMUNITY CARE
I really enjoyed the work placement, and the hands-on learning approach. My trainer was very good at explaining things which made the classroom a cool place to learn as well. Having a great trainer really helps. I’ve just graduated, looking for my first job. This is just the beginning though, I’m aiming to gain my Bachelor Degree in Nursing. Doing nothing is not an option in life; so go ahead and do it, enrol in something that you like the sound of and see where it takes you.
