    “Landing a new role as a Career Advisor, I needed to upskill to hold a minimum of a Cert IV in Career Development. After chatting to Sally we landed on pursuing a Graduate Certificate of Career Development Practice due to my experience. Sally was extremely supportive throughout the course and made the self-paced learning very easy to follow and work around my current employment. Any questions I had she was quick to answer. It was a pleasure to deal with CDC and I would highly recommend undertaking your Career Development training with them. Sally and her team are extremely passionate and inspiring in this field.”

    Jess Ashcroft, Jobs and Skills Centre

    “Completing my Certificate with the Career Development Centre was a great decision, the support from Sally and the team was endless. Being recognised for the work I am currently doing within the Career Development space was great. If you want a friendly and professional place to study your Graduate Certificate, then I would highly recommend studying with the team at the Career Development Centre.

    Thanks again for all of your support.”

    As an external student who completed a Graduate Certificate in Career Development Practice, through the reputable Career Development Centre in Mitchelton, I can do nothing but praise them; in particular Sally Healey as the CEO, and Amy Guest as the Director and Head of Operations.

    As an external student pursuing this dream, amidst working full-time in the craziness of COVID 19, I truly felt the service was incredibly professional, efficient, cost-effective, accommodating and personalized.  As the first port of call I was welcomed by the brilliant Sally Healey, as I inquired further into pursuing these studies.  Her warm, knowledgeable, personalized approach in our conversations made me feel at ease and comfortable from the onset, immediately feeling affirmed that she knew what she was talking about, validated even further by her extensive background of experience.  She was insightful and honest, as she listened to me share my future prospects and dreams, whilst challenging me to consider and think through carefully the various approaches and avenues I could take in achieving this.

    If you are presently searching for a company to undertake further studies to assist in pursuing your dream as a career counselor or advisor, I highly recommend this company to you, whether it be in the online format or in person.
