UWSCollege: Offers the opportunity to 'Step Forward into Education'
UWSCollege, Lithgow Campus, located within the University of Western Sydney, is offering residents the opportunity to 'Step Forward into Education' to improve their educational qualifications and enhance their career opportunities.
Enrolments are now open for the free, two full day workshops, running from 9:30am to 4:30pm each day.
- Lithgow: Thursday 18 to Friday 19 June 2015
During day one the workshop will explore personal barriers to participation in education and focuses on strategies to overcome these issues. Topics include current education practices, the importance of teamwork, understanding expectations, recognition of learning types, positive role modelling, storytelling and self-expression.
Day two is highly experiential and builds on the foundation, confidence and team building skills acquired during day one. Course content explores ways of avoiding common traps and ensuring you make a positive impact in formal settings such as delivering a class presentation, attending a job interview or during day-to-day transactions. The practical coursework will focus on vocal excellence and physical presence.
Professor Greg Whateley, Dean, UWSCollege says, we offer those who may not have had the opportunity to receive the necessary preparation for tertiary study the chance to gain the knowledge and confidence to step forward and return to learning.
"One of the advantages of studying at UWSCollege is the direct entry arrangement with UWS. After successfully completing either University Foundation Studies or a Diploma, and meeting the entry requirements, students are guaranteed direct entry into the first or second year of the corresponding undergraduate degree at UWS," says Professor Whateley.
At the conclusion of the workshops a personalised academic and careers advisory session offers an opportunity to meet with UWS academics and careers advisors to discuss pathways to further education and to explore ways to achieve your goals.
