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 Manager 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.
Have a great week!
Ann Elisha

Liverpool Campus Update

On 21 March our students from the 1300 Apprentice Pre-Traineeship course completed their studies and attained two units from the Cert III in Business Administration. Pre-traineeship courses are designed to connect students with industry employers, provide on-the-job work experience, learning industry skills and WH&S. We are excited for these participants to start their work placement or traineeships, and look forward to working with 1300 Apprentice to achieve these goals.
Our Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care students have been working in group activities and reviewed what they learned during the module Promote and Provide Healthy Food and Drinks. The students presented their findings as a group to the class.
Group 1 presented on safe food practices, codes and legislation, and cleaning and sanitising, and serving. Group 2 presented on what is nutrition, ‘sometimes’ and ‘always’ foods, the five food groups, recommended intake of foods, and physical activity.
The My Gateway Business Administration Pre-Traineeship course commenced on 27 March 2019. Students spent the day getting acquainted with each other and started on their WHS unit of study. The first day was awesome and we look forward to sharing this journey with them. It was also great for students to meet the team from My Gateway who gave them insights into what can be achieved after completing the course.
Role plays are underway for the Diploma of Travel and Tourism Management class. Students are learning about Managing Diversity in the Workplace to develop their understanding and perspective of diversity and how to resolve conflicts. Students are creating scripts, practising and presenting to the class. They have had lots of fun with this activity which has led to them to sharing their own cultures. We have been privileged to see their renditions of traditional dance.
