TERM 3 | ISSUE 8
25th September 2016
Message from the CEO
We have reached the end of Term 3 and we are in the final stretch for the year. During the term, our students received a good balance of the elements needed for success in their careers.
In addition to in-class learning, we were pleased and excited to see the growth of our students in Work Placement. Beginning any new position can be challenging. However, ACBC students have risen to the challenge, and we are grateful for the many positive reviews we have received from host employers. Our alumni often tell us that work experience during their studies with us was major stepping stone in their career development, and we are happy to see our current students gaining career-building skills and connections. Thank you to our host employers for offering an important learning opportunity for our students.
During the term our students also had the opportunity to learn about the importance of community involvement. One example of this was Jeans for Genes day when our students, staff, trainers and local businesses worked together to raise funds for vital research to prevent childhood diseases.
In Term 3 we were excited to announce that ACBC was approved to Deliver Vocational Education and Training for HSC in 2017. We will offer six qualifications for HSC students across Business, Travel and Children’s Services from February 2017 for four years.
Finally, we are holding our Open Days on all our campuses this week. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the study and career paths offered at ACBC. Careers Advisors will be on hand to answer questions, while alumni, trainers and industry experts will share their knowledge.
