It was a pleasure to visit Marissa Esposito and Teresa Areana in their work placement undertaking their Certificate 3 in Child Studies at Emali Early Learning Centre at Underdale in April: Click here for more information – Emali Underdale.

The Director from Emali, Rachel Masters, shows great leadership within this new and exciting learning centre, and she is very committed to building skills in work placement students. St Michael’s is very grateful to Rachel and her team for providing Marissa and Teresa with a wonderful opportunity to develop and have competencies assessed.

As part of the Certificate 3 in Child Studies, students need to complete 120 hours of work placement, and this traditionally occurs during the school holidays. From the St Michael’s 2020 Destination Report we can see that two of our students, who graduated with a Certificate 3 in Child Studies in 2020, have secured full time work in child care in 2021.

Torrens University is a boutique university with a campus here in Adelaide on Wakefield Street. For students who want to investigate different types of courses, enjoy smaller learning groups, and have an assigned success mentor, it may be worth investigating.

Please consider signing up for their virtual open day, which runs from 11am -7pm. If you sign up in advance, you will also be able to access some of the presentations at a later date. Click Here for more information.
