I did my own research and comparison online and selected Performance Education to do my Professional Year with. I will recommend it to whoever wants to do the PY course, gain useful knowledge and enjoy a good environment - so it can save them time searching for a PY provider. Performance Education adds value to my personal, social and professional life and helped me reach my goals faster with a reliable pathway. The advice from my trainers helped me perform well in the interview for this company which I now have a job with. Also the friendly environment with friendly trainers and staff was a very important factor in making the class hours enjoyable, and I was eager to come to class.

I would recommend the Professional Year to those who lack essential soft skills and understanding of Australian workplace norms; the Professional Year course intensively helps students in areas which cannot be learned at university, but are highly sought in the workplace. It also provided valuable corporate work experience which have developed some of the most crucial soft skills and looks good on my resume and increases my employability. I’m now working as a Data Management Officer!

The ability to adapt to a changing environment is one of the core prerequisites for career success in Australia. The Professional Year program provided the opportunity to meet and exchange knowledge in a multicultural environment with students and faculty members. Through Work Integrated Learning (WIL), international students and recent graduates like us are exposed to real work environment and become familiar with a particular role. Therefore, while applying for any job vacancies or employment opportunities, we are highly likely to be considered for shortlisting. Moreover, it also increases the level of confidence we have to perform the stipulated duties and responsibilities under that particular role. I would highly recommend the Professional Year course to my friends and all recent graduates because it provides an opportunity to develop your professional career after completion of study through practical workplace experience and enhancing transferable skills.

Performance Education has got some of the best possible teachers that know exactly what they are doing and on top of that, students will undoubtedly be receiving the most help they could ask for from their placement consultant(s).

I would without a shadow of doubt recommend Professional Year to everyone that is finding it hard to cope with an Australian employment demand. Professional Year provides students with a platform to experience working environment with big companies across Australia. Furthermore, students are guaranteed to have a work experience in the industry related to their field of study.

I took up a Professional Year because it was a fantastic opportunity to gain work experience in an Australian company which would lay a good foundation for my career, enrich my understanding of the culture and legislation within the Australian workplace, and teach me how to act and communicate professionally. The Professional Year is designed for international graduates. It links the gap between university education and workplace requirements, and benefits international graduates in many ways. A module I enjoyed was Australian Professional Meetings. It provides students with mock meetings and strategies for writing agendas and minutes, so students will be more confident and competent in undertaking similar tasks in the workplace. Even though it is a basic skill for many local people, learning these helps international students not be frustrated in meetings because they understand it better now. The course enriched my hands-on experience and strengthened my workplace skills. I'm now working as an Assistant Accountant!

I had the opportunity to learn many things which I never knew; the way my trainer Stephen taught us how to make a good impression towards anyone was amazing. Even though I've done many presentations when I was in university, the way that the Professional Year taught us how to maintain the audience's attention and do a successful presentation helped me a lot. I also had the chance to experience an IT placement; my mentor was really friendly and the host company felt like home. I love Performance Education because they have the best staff to guide us and it brought out the best in me!

There are many aspects of an actual workplace experience which cannot be taught in the classroom. During the internship, I had the opportunity to meet with industry veterans, and improve my communication and technical skills. One important thing which I learnt during the Professional Year is the fact that communication skills can be just or even more important than technical skills. While technical skills are important, the way we interact is critical if we are to succeed in our careers. The ability to communicate verbally and in writing effectively is important for any professional. I have also improved my employability skills. In other words, I have learned to create a better resume, cover letter and now understand what to and not to say during that all important job interview. In addition, I also enjoyed many of the classroom lessons which involved presentations. I would recommend the Professional Year Program to individuals who have recently finished their tertiary education and wish to make a foray into the professional world. The main reason is that this particular program provides students with valuable information about work and professional life, all of which will benefit the individuals undertaking this course when they enter the workforce.

My classmates were very friendly and the teacher was so energetic and cheerful. After being taught how to build a professional resume and sell myself in the job market, my resume changed drastically. The Australian Workplace Culture module was very important for newbies like me as it taught me industry expectations and norms.

In competitive job markets it is essential to set you apart from the others. Performance Education provided me with the platform to build on my knowledge of IT by giving guidance on how to adapt to the Australian Work Culture, essential skills for our future careers and how to implement them. During the internship they placed me with, I learnt how to act in a professional environment, how to effectively communicate and collaborate with co-workers who may have different academic backgrounds and work techniques, and how to apply everything I learnt in the classroom to a real organisation – that was undoubtedly the most valuable thing. Overall, the program is very well designed to assist international graduates to help them gain employment in their chosen career, as well as providing eligibility for migration points towards permanent residency. The training I received at Performance Education helped me to feel very comfortable pretty fast at my internship, and that led to a pretty easy transition from intern to full time employee at my host company.

I would recommend a Professional Year and Internship to anyone who is keen to start their career as a fresh graduate - it is the best stepping stone to test what you have learnt in University. I would like to thank the Performance Education team and especially my consultant for her outstanding support and encouragement – you have helped me to increase my confidence and enhance my communication skills by your superior service and excellent teams.

After completing my study I was in a dilemma of how to get job in my field. Performance Education taught me all the essentials skills which helped me to find a job and enhance my career. Not only is Performance Education the best Australian Education Institute but it’s a platform which gave me an opportunity to experience the international business world and to learn, improve and develop new sets of skills. The 3 month internship was the most memorable moment in my life which changed my career. It built up my confidence and gave me the opportunity to learn different skills which has helped me for my future. I am now working as an Accounts Assistant with the company I completed my Internship with.

The IT (ACS) Professional Year gave me confidence and knowledge about Australian business culture, workplace skills, professional business communication, career guidance and much needed internship experience in an Australian company. The internship was an exciting experience, I learnt new skills and it gave me so much energy, enthusiasm and motivation. I certainly recommend the program to my peers to study at Performance Education.

I would strongly recommend that fresh graduates take part in a Professional Year course. The internship especially helps mould you to fit in the Australian workforce. In my Internship I learnt many important things from my manager, I was quite inspired by her work and way she handled all the problems and managed her time. I am sure all the experience from my internship will help me in my career. I got the chance to improve my communication skills in various ways, by telephone, formal business email, discussing at meetings and so on. I also got the opportunity to improve my technical skills by updating content on sharepoint, software maintenance of iPad and iPhone of users, as well as finishing tasks on time with attention to detail. I had a fun and challenging time as an intern. I am a winner at the end to be a part of the company and work as a team. Thinking positive in life and moving ahead with a vision is what I am doing now. Thank you to the staff at Performance Education, I have found them to be experienced and knowledgeable and the course is masterly planned to benefit students from overseas.

At Performance Education, I’ve learnt much about the Australian professional culture and business standards. It’s been a great start to a career for an individual like me who wants to show my capability and dedication to the related field, but doesn’t know where to start from. I have gained so much self-confidence and motivation. Best of all, I was awarded a contract as an Accounts Assistant in the company where I did my internship!
