Participant story | Diploma of Work Health and Safety and Diploma of Quality Auditing
Bruce's study path and experience
Bruce's plan was to find a job as a Case Manager, and he'd been passed over for jobs on the grounds that he wasn't qualified enough. We see many people in a similar position; they have lots of experience and need that final 'piece of paper', a qualification, that proves their expertise.
At Swinburne Edge, Bruce dived into his studies and got as involved as he possibly could. "I've been doing the Fast-Tracks, and I find the study is easier to prioritise in this format. It's so high-value, and the experience you get from other people in the industry is priceless."
Bruce found two key things among his fellow Swinburne Edge participants: positive outlooks, and gratitude. "In every workshop, there were people who held positions in their organisations, and still wanted to learn more. Getting feedback, and being able to talk to fellow professionals, you quickly all level up."
Bruce continued, "I've been able to share my experiences too, and the facilitator always evolved the content in the class to give us more relevant insights into what the industry is about, and I'm pleased to say that I've enlightened other participants in disability areas that they hadn't considered."
Swinburne Edge support
The Swinburne Edge team wanted to ensure Bruce had the best learning experience possible. The team worked with Swinburne Accessibility Services to develop an Education Access Plan for Bruce, and introduced Bruce to the Learning and Academic Skills (LAS) team for study support.
In addition, the course coordinator was enlisted to provide additional support and liaised with the Work Health and Safety faculty for reasonable adjustments. The two course facilitators, Rohan and Peter, were also active supporters of Bruce's study paths.
Swinburne Edge is highly committed to supporting our students so they have a successful and enjoyable study experience.
