Message from the CEO
Teamwork plays an important part in career development. At ACBC we promote this among our students, administration staff and trainers. One recent opportunity to work as a team was Jeans for Genes Day in early August. We worked together as well as with our local communities to raise money for this important cause. The funds raised will assist in funding vital research that helps scientists at the Children’s Medical Research Institute discover treatments and cures to give every child the opportunity to live a long and healthy life. Thank you to all who participated for making Jeans for Genes Day a resounding success.
For over 15 years, we have worked together with a range of businesses and employees through our traineeship programs. An increasing number of employers are recognising the value of enhancing the skills of their employees and have been turning to ACBC to achieve this. While employees gain valuable skills and a qualification through traineeships, employers improve their workforce and results. So it’s a win-win result.
In addition to teaming up with businesses, we have also worked with local universities through articulation agreements. We are pleased to announce that Western Sydney University has renewed our articulation agreement and updated details for advanced standing for our courses. We are honoured to be one of the few RTOs that have an articulation agreement with WSU.
In September, we will have another opportunity for teamwork and to get involved with our communities at our Open Day. Our alumni, staff, trainers, Work Placement hosts and other local leaders get involved to make our Open Day a community event. Open Day gives high school students the opportunity to discuss their options with Careers Advisors, gain insights from ACBC alumni who have launched careers, and hear from industry experts in a number of fields. In addition, our Open Day is another way for us to connect with local businesses and the communities we serve. We look forward to seeing you.
