“I chose to study Community Services at Industry Skills Training (IST) as I have a passion to empower and support people with tools and services to help them achieve the life they want. Most importantly, I want people in the community to understand there is support for them – and that others care for their wellbeing. I believe that as a community we can achieve a win/ win for all kinds of situations, we just all need to understand the difference between empowerment and enablement, and where to draw the line to make a difference.

I enjoy studying at IST as the delivery of the training modules are concise and easy to understand, and there is no pressure during assessments. I have found the staff at IST to be very approachable and friendly, and the college does not feel like school at all – and feels more like a big happy family supporting you. Even if you are not sure what to do with your certification, trainers will help you find your niche or interest.”
