CLEARVIEW EARLY LEARNING & KINDERGARTEN
We have employed in-house students enrolled with the College for the past three years. It’s an outstanding opportunity for students to work, gain experience and complete their studies. I believe this approach creates more knowledgeable and skilled early childhood educators.
Consistent contact with the students and our Centre, quality contemporary course resources, and scheduled in-person visits to support the students and ensure their success are the elements that really make ACE different as an RTO. So good is the course quality I’ve decided to upgrade my own qualifications.
DIPLOMA EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION AND CARE
My friend had done a course with ACE and she thought it would be a great place for me to begin my training. It’s really close to home, so I looked it up on the internet and then came to the College to find out some more information. The team here made all the difference.
I did this course for my young daughter – I wanted her to look at me and be proud of my achievements. Within the first 40 hours of work placement I was offered a job, wow! I didn’t think I was good enough, and was nervous when starting. But after that, I knew not only my daughter would be proud, I was proud of myself. I felt more confident and proved to myself that I could do it.
All students with English as a second language like me feel nervous about joining classes. I would encourage anyone thinking the same way to not be afraid, don’t let it hold you back. Just look at me – you can do it!
My husband had done this same course, he was very happy with the training and in that time I also got to know the trainer and she was amazing!
Doing this course opened my eyes to a whole different world which I hadn’t really thought that much about before. The trainer [Leeann] couldn’t help you enough, she has many years of experience behind her and she was very passionate about the industry.
I completed the Certificate III in Aged Care and have gone onto do Certificate III in Individual Support – Disability and I find it inspiring because of the people I have come into contact with already. Plus I have gained employment and can’t wait to further expand on my studies.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain if you are looking for a career or a change just go for it.
I first found ACE online while looking for an RTO to update my Certificate IV TAA to Cert IV TAE with the LLN module. At the completion of that course I saw ACE offered Cert III in Individual Support/Aged Care I didn’t hesitate to sign up.
The passion of the trainer shone bright, she showed us the right way to go about everything and how to do the very best for our clients. The amount of hands on experience and the fact I had a job before I finished was such a surprise.
I sat on the fence for too long and should of had a go quicker, if you want a change only you can make it happen, don’t wait.
CERTIFICATE IV LEISURE & HEALTH
I was recommended to ACE about 2 years ago by a nurse. I also did my research on the internet and ACE had a much broader offering.
One of the biggest things that stood out for me with ACE was their work placement was in full swing within a month of starting, which gave me the ability to become quickly skilled and gain the knowledge and understanding to complete each module. Plus the ACE trainers really give you support and encouragement to keep moving forward.
I loved the variety, you’re not just sitting in a classroom.
So don’t dwell on the thought of starting your course because that’s time lost, there are so many opportunities out there that can take you from the classroom to that perfect job.
As a client of The Migrant Centre for Settlement Services, they informed me about ACE Community Colleges. And after comparing a number of course options I choose Business Administration Medical as it offered a comprehensive nationally recognised certificate.
The big unexpected thing was a tremendous opportunity for me to meet and study alongside locals. That was a really lovely surprise.
My experience studying at the College was very positive. It is a very supportive environment, and I can see how my qualification is going to benefit me in securing future career opportunities.
To everyone thinking of taking on study please just try it – you will learn so much and grow professionally.
I heard about the College from a friend and then I made a call to see what was available to me. The student customer service is hugely good, they team answered all of my many, many questions, and I had lots of support the entire journey.
In so many ways my learning has only just begun, I’m currently adding to my qualifications with a diploma of engineering technology through TAFE. I’m looking to move into the civil engineering industry and see where that takes me and my career. It’s so exciting!
My wife completed her study with ACE and really enjoyed the experience. So when I needed to gain new qualifications for my career change I went with the College. Their proven track record and the different flexible study options really helped with a busy schedule. I did my entire qualification through the evening class option.
The class atmosphere is so positive. Everyone, instructor included had fun while in class. I loved the learning.
You know, to anyone siting on the fence today I would say, take the chance and start something for yourself. Once settled into my new job I will be back at ACE to upgrade my skills. Onwards and upwards!
After returning back to the workforce from being a stay home mum I wanted to continue my love of teaching however I needed to further my studies and engage with the emerging new curriculum.
With ACE I thought yes I can continue my studies and yes they will be there for me. I completed my Diploma through flexible learning which meant I could work at the same time and be there for my family. My mentor was a gem. I would text her all hours of the day asking her questions and she would get back to me soon after which was a big help. I felt like I was sitting in the classroom.
I recently opened up my own Family Day Care “My Early Years” where I offer individual care and learning for each child.
Certificate III in Home & Community Care
Certificate IV in Aged Care
The best thing about training with ACE was my tutor. Her professionalism, understanding and energy made learning so much easier. She really motivated us to get excited about what we can do with our career. The course was very thorough and has made for a very smooth transition from study to work for me – it was everything I needed and more.
You lose nothing by giving it a go. It looks daunting but it really isn’t.
