After a number of dream careers, including peacekeeping in East Timor, business management, and time spent at home raising a family, Ed has set his sights set on the fitness industry. “I’ve always enjoyed what I’m doing, and really this is just another step in that very long journey you take in life,” said Ed. With the children now more grown-up and settled into school, Ed said he was determined not to go back to a desk job and took up a Diploma of Sports Development at TAFE Queensland. “I want something where I can manage my own time, I am fairly passionate about helping people who are in their 40’s, 50’s 60’s and beyond into living healthy and productive lives,” he said.Browse 2016 Courses
A good career change is moving out of a job you hate, but a great career change is moving into a job you love – and Matthew is well on his way to making this happen. After spending some time in construction, Matt took a break to do some travelling. Now studying a Certificate IV in Youth Work, Matt will use his qualification to work with troubled youth and emergency housing, and as a pathway to further study. “I changed from Construction to Youth Work because I wasn’t really enjoying the construction side of things, and I wanted to get into Youth Work… I’ve always wanted to help kids out, and that would be really rewarding for me,” he said.Browse 2016 Courses
