Conversations: Meagan talks about her Diploma with Fortress Learning (video).


I had the pleasure of speaking with Meagan Probert from Key Assets, an Australia-wide foster care organisation.
Meagan is currently enrolled in a Diploma of Leadership & Management with Fortress Learning. The mother of two has a Bachelor of Social Work and has worked in the field for over 20 years. Her current role at Key Assets is Manager of Learning Development and Practice.
I had a lovely chat with Meagan, where among other things, we discussed:

The Key Takeaways:

  • How Meagan is able to juggle work, family and study with the support of her employer  (1:03)
  • How Meagan came across Fortress Learning and why she decided to enrol (3:20)

  • Why Meagan recommends asking lots of questions before signing up (7:55).
  • The biggest unknown for Meagan was what was expected of her in terms of writing style and how much is required (8:31).
