Right Attitude. Right System. Right Team.


Every now and then, a student writes a Review that we believe deserves to be featured and discussed. Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and let you know our thoughts about them.

This is what Anup said: 

I enrolled for Diploma of Leadership and management with lots of hesitation as I did not know much about this organization. After I started, I realized I made a right decision choosing Fortress learning.

They have the right attitude. They have the right system. They have the right team. Training resources were great.

Bryan expects the comprehensive and high quality submission, so it made me work hard and put in more efforts and time.

Another good thing is, submission gets checked within four days. So, they do not make you wait long to get your assessment checked.

There was never a moment when I was frustrate dealing with them.

If I have to give any suggestion, I will say, please include more courses.

Actions to take when study is stressing you out


We’ve all been there. We have all sat at a desk re-reading the same section of text over and over again, becoming more and more frustrated by the second. Frustration leads to stress which leads to anxiety which leads to feelings of flight or fight.  We want to quit, or we want to argue.

If you are studying a Cert IV TAE, Dual Diploma of VET/TDD, or a Triple Diploma of Business, Business Administration and Leadership and Management and felt this way, you are not alone. When we get stressed, often we get caught in the same loop of thinking. The trick is to have coping strategies for when the stressful moment arises.

Here are 4 actions to take when study is stressing you out:

Three Diploma Graduates share their experiences


 

When it comes to study (and life!), everyone’s experience is different. We all have different demands, priorities, routines, preferences and motivations, so it only makes sense that everyone has their own unique experience when it comes to online learning.

We interviewed three of our Diploma Graduates to find out about their own online learning experience.  While each experience was different, the end result remained the same: they all successfully completed their qualification!

The 10 Leadership Attributes of a Trainer and Assessor


The role of a Trainer and Assessor requires efficiency, an eye for detail and, most importantly, the ability to lead students to success.

Here are 10 leadership attributes of a Trainer and Assessor, with quotes from those who know the profession well:

1. Self-efficacy 

Self-efficacy can be defined as a person’s belief in their ability to succeed. Having a full belief in oneself and one’s occupation allows both the Trainer and Assessor and student to feel confident that they, together, can succeed.

“Teach with passion… A passion that comes from an innate place to harness knowledge and nurture skill.”

– Vijia Chain, Ready Health Nursing College CEO and Director of Clinical Governance.

“I believe it is difficult for most people to have a full belief in one’s self. A lot of people have trouble with that for whatever reason. I don’t believe it is necessary to have a full belief in one’s self in order to have a full belief in what you’re doing.

From a point of view of leadership it’s so much easier to lead others; to encourage others; to be a role model for others, if you believe, and if you together believe, in what it is you are trying to achieve.”

– Dr Bryan West, Fortress Learning Managing Director.
