Ashley shares why she loved studying Early Education and Care at EIM Training

My name is Ashley and I’m a mother in my 30’s. Studying again after my traineeship in Child Care 13 years ago was not on my radar, until I got the urge to come back into this field of work after having my 3 girls.

Studying my Diploma to advance my skill set and push myself to be better came easily to me once I started working again. I started back at Community Kids Coomera where my daughters went for day care and afterschool care. I have been with Community Kids for 3 years but as of January 2022, I will be moving over to Kool Kids Pacific Pines to take on an opportunity to work in a Kindergarten room while I study my Bachelor degree – an opportunity I am extremely grateful for.

I moved over to EIM from Open Colleges 2 years ago and it was a great decision for me. I felt more supported through EIM and loved how my trainer would come and visit me in my workplace to
check how I was tracking and answer any questions I had. I really value that quality of teaching with an institute -it helped motivate when I was stuck in a rut and my trainer was always helpful and answered every question.

I managed to finish Diploma in Early Education and Care within the 2 years and liked how excited my trainer was for me to have graduated, I appreciate those small things. I found the online portal easy to use and loved tracking my progress along the way. Because I was working throughout my diploma studies, I was fortunate enough to do more recognition of prior learning units (RPL’S) which helped me get my Diploma within the 2-year time frame.

Throughout my studies I would talk with my trainer about my future career and study goals and how after I finish my Diploma, I want to start studying my bachelor degree in early childhood education. To have the knowledge from my Diploma and working fulltime in the Early Childhood industry, I have no doubt I have set myself up for greater success in my Bachelor studies.

I am excited for my future and where I am taking myself and am really happy with choosing EIM to advance myself into the next level of my career. I cannot fault EIM and how they conduct themselves and help their students. I had the most amazing experience with EIM and while I am excited to have graduated, I am also sad I won’t see my trainer monthly.

Thankyou EIM for giving me an exceptional study experience, I know for the future if anybody is wondering where to go to further their studies, career, knowledge that I will suggest EIM to study through. Great experience all round, 5 out of 5 stars!
