Greater Shepparton City Council | Business Management

Council Graduation

26 Greater Shepparton City Council employees successfully completed Certificate IV in Frontline Management (BSB40812) and Diploma of Management (BSB51107) at the Shepparton Campus in 2015.

Hannah Rowlands, Greater Shepparton City Council Communications Officer completed her studies and graduated at a special ceremony in September.

“One of the best things about the course was the opportunity to work with colleagues that I never usually have a chance to work with. It was great to bounce ideas and gain different perspectives from people working across the organisation in areas such as Governance, Childcare, Aged Services and Recreation and Parks.”

“I was able to complete this course over a 12 month period, attending class two days a month, which fitted in well with my work commitments. I really enjoyed being able to thrash out ideas with my colleagues and the assignments allowed me to refer back to my work, which was very helpful.”

GOTAFE Business and IT Commercial Manager Jo Craig enjoyed celebrating the achievements of the students with their family and friends.

“The Graduation is a recognition of the efforts that each student has made to gain their qualification.  It is definitely challenging to balance a full time role, study and a private life. They now have a ‘toolbox’ of communication, project management and problem solving skills that they can apply in their workplace resulting in better performance for both themselves and the Council.”

“GOTAFE has a long and continuing training partnership with Greater Shepparton City Council which demonstrates how we are able to work with organisations to enhance and develop the skills of their employees. We develop and modify our training programs to ensure they are relevant to the particular organisation and the roles their staff are required to perform.”
