Gem of a STEPS program prepares students in Emerald
Published on 19 October, 2011
CQUniversity Emerald Learning Centre celebrated the 2011 STEPS (Skills for Tertiary Education Preparatory Studies) Completion Ceremony recently.
During the evening, students were presented with their Completion Certificates by visiting Academic Learning Services Director of Studies Karen Seary.
The University's Emerald-based STEPS Coordinator, Jo Rosenblatt said she was very pleased with the evening and very proud of the number of students articulating from STEPS into tertiary studies.
The Operations and Project Manager for CQUniversity Emerald, Gai Sypher, who is herself a past graduate of STEPS, said the popular preparatory program is wonderful.
"STEPS gives you the break to make dreams come true. I quit school at the end of year 11 and today thanks to STEPS I have two university degrees, ensuring a secure future," Ms Sypher said.
STEPS is available to anyone aged 18 or above who is an Australian or New Zealand citizen, permanent resident or a holder of a humanitarian visa.
