We’d like to introduce our students to the concept of flex-learning here at TrainSmart Australia which has huge benefits as it’s a mixture of face-to face teaching and online learning.
Three of our students who have just started their diplomas, are now spending a day every fortnight at our Sydney learning centre gaining more knowledge from lecturers in a classroom environment as part of this flex learning initiative.
Maddison Henson, Toni-Lea Buhagiav and Sally Cole are studying either the Diploma of Community Services and the Diploma of Counselling Services. As some of the subject units overlap, they could be offered tutoring together. Trainer, Stuart Barrett says feedback has been really encouraging.
“The best thing about this flex learning is that students don’t feel isolated, they are able to interact with each other and bounce ideas off one another. It is encouraging them to ask more questions and is really motivating them.”
All three students are undertaking the course through the Government’s Smart and Skilled program. This scheme means students can enrol on courses at a fraction of the usual cost because of financial subsidies. Courses offered are those where there is deemed to be a lack of suitably qualified people in this type of industry already.
