Thank you for being such an engaging, dedicated and caring teacher. You made our weekly studies fun and informative, and I learnt so much. All the best and hope to cross paths again.
Leah you are an awesome facilitator and a fabulous educator. I feel we all progressed so much over the 12 weeks, not only in knowledge but also in confidence.

Jack L. Harris
With Leah’s enthusiastic approach I was motivated to examine much more than the basic requirements of the course. Her depth of knowledge in this arena not only surprised me but empowered me to pursue all aspects of it to ensure I had a really good understanding of what it entailed. Leah had presented the course in a professional yet warm and personal way and which allowed her students to become closely acquainted with the subject. Her passion for helping others is highly evident and via this avenue she is able to encourage others to be the change they want to see in themselves and in the world around them.
Student, Foundations in Career Development Practice
I have been able to demonstrate many of the elements of the course immediately, and see the results in provoking the right conversations, as well as providing areas of focus that aid in alleviating tensions, and pointing toward solutions. Leah has pitched the course to comprehensively cover pertinent topics with her own flair, in a manner befitting high quality professional development. I would recommend it wherever applicable.
Hospitality and Retail
‘The courses are good. I enjoy studying online in my home. It is easier and preferable to going to university. Staff are supportive, assisting me to succeed.’

“I’m blown away! This is fabulous! The Foundations unit I looked at has so many great educational principles built in and all using that digital world so well.”
‘Leah, you have assisted me to broaden my career options beyond what I was considering.’
‘A real insight, I can see how far behind I was – beautiful!’
