I recently interviewed David who is a current Diploma of Government student at Wisdom Learning. Check out what he had to say about the program…
Ariarne: How have you found your return to study and the learning environment Wisdom provides?
David: It is quite a while since I last attended such a comprehensive learning program, and the thought of the diverse course content, together with the robust requirements for the assessments, was quite daunting. However, the Wisdom tutors have delivered the classroom subjects with just the right amount of visual aids, internet based research, and student engagement, as to make me feel confident and empowered. In preparing for the dreaded home assignments, the tutors provide very good reference material to support our research, which I personally have found to be very helpful. The overall learning facilities at Wisdom are excellent, with all possibilities and requirements covered.
“The course content will enable me to grow into a more valuable team member, a more contributing government employee, and a more desirable applicant for future opportunities.”
Ariarne: What do you hope to achieve as a result of completing this program?
David: A greater understanding of the wider requirements of government, and my position and responsibilities within it. I also look forward to learning new ways to engage, support, and lead my colleagues towards a common goal. Upon completion, I feel that the overall course content will enable me to grow into a more valuable team member, a more contributing government employee, and a more desirable applicant for future opportunities.
Ariarne: What you would say about this program so far if a reporter quoted you?
David: This is a well structured course, with very relevant content, that is thought provoking, and makes you want to be a better person and government officer.
Ariarne: How did you find the strengths profile assessment?
David: Very interesting results. It was very reassuring to have what I perceived to be my own personal strengths supported within this report, with the added advantage of an explanation as to how to utilise these strengths to accommodate other people’s attitudes.
Ariarne: Do you have any other comments about the program?
David: Although still very early in the course term, I feel that the course content and workplace related assignments will enable all students to become more valuable, well rounded people, and encourage them to think outside the box more often.
