I really enjoyed the flexibility of studying online. With two young kids it meant I could fit study in around them and their needs. Student support was always available and everyone was very helpful and friendly. I now work as an Education Assistant at a Primary School and I love it! I’ve recommended OC to heaps of people.
It was a very amazing experience, and after completing l was promoted. Now l am already a manager in a center. I'm so grateful to OC for doing a very good job in training me. I was equipped with lots of skills that my fellow colleagues, who are diploma qualified, never had.

Fantastic! Enrolling myself in the Diploma and heading down the online path was daunting at first, especially juggling work and kids, but I was pleasantly surprised how user friendly the whole course has been. The course content is easy to follow and manage. You do need good time management and motivation to stay on track, however the student support has been fantastic.
