Message from the CEO
I am excited to welcome the Class of 2018 to Australian Careers Business College. We are proud that you have chosen to join over 8,000 students who have come through our doors since 1996. We look forward to guiding you on your path to employment and higher education.
You are now beginning a transformational time in your life. Over the next 10 months you will build valuable career skills, gain hands-on industry experience, develop professional networks and make new friends. As you begin your studies, I would like to share a few keys to succeeding at ACBC. First, always ask questions when you don’t know the answer to something. There is nothing wrong with asking for help – that’s how we learn and grow. Your trainers, Campus Manager and Careers Advisors are here to assist you.
Second, apply yourselves and give it all your effort. This includes planning ahead to ensure you take the time to study and avoid getting behind with assessments.
Third, get the right balance between studying, socialising and working. We all need balance to function properly, so determine how much time you will need for each area.
Remember that classroom learning and assignments are important throughout the year, but we will also take time to make friends, serve our communities and have fun at campus events.
Our aim at ACBC is to re-create the workplace environment so you can gain the skills employers need. Your study, in-class experiences and Work Placement are a solid foundation for building your careers. Employers seek our graduates because they have earned a reputation for having positive attitudes and sound knowledge, while presenting themselves professionally.
Campus Manager Lynda Brozic will be contacting you soon to be part of your Student Representative Council (SRC). I encourage you to think about who you want to nominate and get involved in organising special events throughout the year.
To our new students who joined us recently and students who returned after the summer break, we look forward to encouraging and supporting you to get the most out of your experience and watching you succeed during your time at ACBC.
