TERM 1 | ISSUE 2
2 April 2018
Message from the CEO
As we approach the end of Term 1, it’s great to see the progress being made toward reaching your educational and career goals.
With so much focus in our society being placed on being strong, confident and independent, there are many misconceptions about asking for help. Some people believe that asking for assistance is a sign of weakness or ignorance and a burden to others. However, asking for help when you need it is essential for our academic and career success. Sometimes we might be afraid to ask for help when we need it because we have been criticised in the past for asking. But the vast majority of people are glad to assist others, even strangers, when they need help.
At ACBC, we realise the importance of having a strong support network, so your Trainers, Careers Advisors and Campus Managers are here to help you when you have a question on any issue or feel stuck. Asking for help when you need it creates benefits for you and those assisting you. It helps you reach your desired outcome faster with less worry and stress. It enables those helping you to share their talents and experiences. It builds trust between you and the people helping you.
As you advance in your studies and career, there will always be new things to learn and areas where you need support. Asking for assistance when you need it is a strength that will help you overcome new challenges.
