How to enrol

Sylvia Planing

Choose from a range of rewarding career paths

Before commencing my Diploma of Community Services, I had reservations as to what specific career path I should take within the industry. However with the guidance and experience of my teachers by my side, I became better equipped to make a confident and informed career choice; one that provides me with options should I choose to focus on a different path.
