    "Upskilled's Diploma of Leadership & Management course has given me the knowledge I need to build on my experience to be successful in my new role. Finding a training solution to fit around my work and family life has been a challenge, but Upskilled's one day per month class format was perfect for me. Now I have the skills to manage my staff more effectively, and to build better relationships with my staff to ensure we meet our goals. Since completing the course I can comfortably say that the skills and knowledge that I have learnt with Upskilled will certainly help me in becoming a more complete manager. I have now also enrolled in the Diploma of Business and look forward to completing this qualification with Upskilled."

    "I have completed two diploma courses with Upskilled, one delivered in class and the other online, both methods were great. The trainers at Upskilled are excellent and have real world/industry experience, I found this knowledge to be invaluable during the courses. I also use Upskilled in my role as HR manager for staff development at St Andrew's and would recommend them to other organisations."

    "The course allowed me to improve on things I was already doing well, and learn new skills to expand my range of abilities overall. It was always easy to approach the instructor if further help was required and the venue was easy to access, and very comfortable. Another great thing about the course was only missing one day a month from the office, which meant I didn't fall behind on other important work. My state manager and I hope to continue our learning relationship with Upskilled in the future."

    "So much better than TAFE and very good instructors that actually care. With all of the IT technical training it was very well done."

    Angus Blackburn , Certificate II in Information, Digital Media and Technology

    "I wanted to say a big thank you to Upskilled for its wonderful support during my study. It was a pleasure to do a course through such a professional organisation, and I will be recommending the course to my friends. Again, many thanks!"

    Beverley Chamberlain , Certificate IV in Business Administration

    "My initial reason for attending was to have my experience recognised with a certificate. However, as I settled into the course, I found that I embraced new ideas and concepts, and with each unit found a renewed enthusiasm and confidence to make changes to processes I currently use in my work. I thank Upskilled for being so informative and helpful throughout this course. I have found the Upskilled trainers to be down to earth and professional. I know I have grown and contributed to the running of the course, which I recommend to anyone currently working in the field."

    Lorraine Timpano , Certificate IV in Business Administration

    "I recently completed a Certificate IV course in Frontline Management at the Crowne Plaza, Terrigal. Our trainer was Don who, from the outset, made all participants feel very relaxed and comfortable, setting the tone for the days that followed. This was quite an achievement given the diversity of backgrounds and occupations in attendance. Don obviously has a lot of relevant life experience, making him the perfect person to deliver this kind of training. His real world examples were delivered with confidence and humour and were always in sync with unit material, which ensured we remained on track."

    Stephen Wilkinson , Certificate IV in Leadership and Management (previously known as Certificate IV in Frontline Management)

    "Upskilled offered a prompt, friendly and efficient service. My increased knowledge of human resources has provided me with a greater understanding and awareness of the many functions within HR and an increased confidence in my current role. The facilitator was fantastic, very motivating and encouraging. The course attendees came from a diverse range of companies and disciplines including legal, IT, recruitment, and retail. It was interesting to share our experiences of how HR functions are carried out by different industries."
