3 reasons why NOW is the time to build your skill set!

3 reasons why NOW is the time to build your skill set!

A lot of us have learnt some impressive new skills this year... how to make banana bread, how to recite each Australian State’s Premiers name and how to build a beginners veggie patch... 

And while that is very impressive and extremely relevant, we believe it’s never been a more important time to continue to build your skill set and get ready for the Post-coronavirus job market. 

Here’s 3 reasons why NOW is the time:


This year we have all learnt to re-understand the meaning of the word ‘restrictions”, yet ironically, there is more flexibility around us than ever! And we’re not just talking about the ability to work from home or have your Domino’s Pizza delivered without any human interaction. 

Flexibility around HOW you learn, WHEN you learn and how you PAY for it is so important in making sure you get the very best outcomes. 

How can we offer you flexibility? We’re so glad you asked!

  • All of our courses can be completed 100% online, or in a blended model of face-to-face and online.
    You also have the option of studying with us part-time. 
  • We have monthly intakes so you can start your studies at a time that suits you.
  • Eligible students have the option to defer their payments with the Australian Government’s FEE-HELP service.

This flexibility allows for you to be able to take time out of your busy schedule and fit in studies that will lead you to an industry you are passionate about!


Motivation is something so many of us are struggling to find at the moment.

Learning new skills is such a great source of accomplishment. The more we learn, the more accomplished we feel. This leads to further momentum, confidence building and empowerment. Something I think all of us would like plenty of, am I right?

This isn’t really just all about the internal growth as this plays a huge part in our career path too.

For an employee to see a potential candidate's dedication to studying their industry or field acts as a huge competitive advantage in the job market!


So, you’re telling me I have to get experience before I get experience? A large number of applicants are all hustling for very limited job openings. If you are looking for your first job in your industry or a change in careers,  having a university qualification behind you can help set you apart in a very cluttered job market. 

Being in the industry, we also know how important it is to learn on the job, that’s why we provide real life and real industry work experience for all our students. There are also opportunities to undergo optional internships throughout your studies.

 Throughout your degree we will also get you job ready by helping you;

  • Create an industry worthy resume and LinkedIn profile
  • Practice and strengthen your job interview techniques
  • Develop a career plan
