"After researching a few different schools, Didasko met the majority of my needs in pursuing a Diploma of Marketing whilst also offering a Diploma of Business as part of the course structure.
I began my Diploma in August of 2014. I had a plan to be completed by the end of the following year and looking for work by January of 2016. As a sole parent to two children under the age of four years old I needed to study in a flexible manner.
I had a few hiccups at the start of my course, however, I was afforded significant support from Ann and she never made me feel as though my questions were unfounded. After a lengthy discussion between myself and her it was found that one assessment question was too ambiguous for a course with no contact hours.
On the Monday of the last week of my course I rang Ann and said “I want to complete these last three units by Friday”. Ann gave my assessments priority and I was able to complete the Double Diploma by Thursday afternoon.
I completed my Double Diploma in record time and I was granted resume and interview coaching from Meg Thomson. It took a while for an employer to see my parental status as a point of merit, however, Meg gave me techniques to show a potential employer that my responsibilities at home did not hamper my ability to perform the job effectively. Our perseverance paid off and I am now employed as a Store Manager in a retail business with responsibilities that far outweigh the regular position description."
