Cire Training Supports Student Uniqueness

Are you thinking about further study? One of the best things about being an adult student is that you get to learn in a way that’s tailored specifically to you. At Cire Training, we support the uniqueness of our students and work hard to create a learning environment that meets their needs.

As part of our enrolment interviews, our Business Development Officer, Naomi Taylor (pictured above right), knows the importance of taking time to get to know each prospective student to ensure they receive the best possible individualised assistance.

“A favourite part of my job is to help students feel comfortable and confident, as they take the next step in achieving their goals,” Naomi explained.

“We recently heard from a parent, after her daughter enrolled in Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care who commended how ‘staff went out of their way to answer all our questions and made my daughter feel welcome and valued.”

Through a process of several discussions, the team gained insights into how to ensure the student had a positive training experience. This understanding was then applied when Naomi introduced the prospective student to our trainer, Paula. Meeting the teacher, and seeing the classroom, prior to commencing is a useful way to reduce anxiety, and it helped her feel more at ease.

Not all students flourish in busy class environments, so group sizes at Cire Training are kept small. This means trainers can learn more about each individual and ensure that they have the resources, information and support needed.

As another parent said: “It was vital that we chose a provider that offered inclusive classes with extra student support for my 18-year-old daughter to study. This is precisely what we found when we enrolled at Cire Training.”

At Cire we truly take the time to get to know each student, so that we can also understand what they may need to succeed.  It is a signature approach at Cire and one that is valued highly by all our learners, and their families.

With a suite of complimentary programs, our team can connect students with additional support, ranging from English and Study skills to Technology. Cire is also proud to coordinate Reconnect throughout the Yarra Valley, providing additional support.  This connection can further help students achieve their best outcomes.

“We were given the option to be a part of the “Reconnect Program” providing my daughter with a caseworker who provides further support and advocacy throughout her course.”

If you, or a family member, are considering pursuing further study, Cire Training may well be the right fit! Every member of our team is committed to helping each of our learners succeed. The year is already shaping up to be a great one and we look forward to providing the pathway and support for students to be job-ready by 2023.

“The team at Cire goes above and beyond to set up students to succeed.”

You don’t need a uni degree to have a great career…

Mid-January saw many thousands of 2016 year 12 students receive first round offers into their chosen university course. To the students who didn’t receive an offer, congratulations on completing your final year of secondary education.

 “I want to congratulate every student who has received an offer but I also want every potential student to understand that there are very many paths to the career you seek.” Gayle Tierney, Minister for Training and Skills

University is not for everyone so for those who didn’t get through, or didn’t even apply, there are plenty of alternatives out there that can lead to a rewarding career. University is not the only pathway available to achieving a happy, successful and fulfilling career. There are many different options ahead for those not attending university. Whether or not it is the decision to head straight into the workforce, or the opportunity to travel and work overseas. For some it is the potential to seek further education and training at a local community based Registered Training Organisation (RTO) to study in a chosen field.

Passing your VCE is a massive achievement that you all should be very proud of. Now is the time to think about your career and plans for your future. Some professions are in high demand such as early childhood education and aged and community care. A growing ageing population has meant that many people have joined this rewarding sector. With parents now returning to work earlier, children’s services’ providers are hiring on a regular basis. Both these professions are obtainable by gaining a certificate or diploma.

Cire Training is a local RTO based in Mount Evelyn and Yarra Junction and offers courses ranging from a certificate II level to diploma level. Students can enrol, complete a certificate or diploma course and be qualified and working within 6 to 18 months. Many of the courses include practical on the job skills and experience through completing work placement hours and knowledge and expertise by attending classroom sessions.

“Our vocational qualifications are nationally recognised and will provide you with a pathway to further your career opportunities or prepare you to take an entirely new direction” Anna-Louise Allen – Manager Cire Education and Training.

Another pathway to consider is undertaking a traineeship, where a student can work within the industry and be paid whilst studying towards a qualification.

University is not the only option when considering further study; there are many ways to further your education and reach career goals. If you’re not sure what to do or where to turn, drop into your local RTO for a chat about what courses are offered and options for career pathways.
