Millie Harris | Student, Melbourne
"I received as much support as I asked for, and often I was given a call from the friendly staff at Career Life College to ask me if I needed any assistance. They were very flexible and great at talking me through tasks and helping me to understand the relevant concepts. They also were fantastic at asking what I needed, and when I let them know my goal of finishing the course within a certain time frame, they gave me regular gentle nudges to keep me on track!"
