My industry knowledge of marketing and graphic design covers a variety of sectors including retail, print, insurance and hospitality. Following many years’ working in creative departments for both small and large organisations, I found my passion as a teacher whilst training the wider workforce.

I have experience with both traditional practices and digital platforms and my primary focus is on up-skilling learners to meet industry standards.

I have found SBC to be both warm and welcoming, with a team of well-qualified trainers and assessors. The environment is professional and provides learners with the tools and technology they require in a workplace.

Justine

Senior Trainer and Assessor  – Areas of specialisation: Travel and Customer Service

Over 20 years’ experience in the travel industry working both in the UK and Australia, has enabled me to travel extensively which is a huge passion of mine. Being able to meet people from different countries and cultures is so fulfilling and travel to me is what life is all about.

Excellent customer service is not just about meeting the needs and wants of the customer, but exceeding expectations and delighting them. I believe in going the extra mile, and customer service is key to success in this ever changing travel industry.

It’s a great industry to work in and at Sterling Business College course are industry focussed. This provides students with the head start to gaining a rewarding career.

I enjoy the interaction of local and international students at the college, the way they learn from each other and about each other. It’s a great cultural mix! The arts are part of a creative, vibrant industry that never stops evolving and which links into other areas like multimedia and web design.

I particularly enjoy the hands-on nature of vocational learning. Students work on practical projects aimed at increasing their overall skills. At Sterling the students are friendly and staff are very easy to work with.

Luke

I have a legal background and over 15 years of management experience, and now consult in the cosmetic medical and digital health space. I have been training in business management for over 7 years across sectors, ancillary to my consulting practice and have always found imparting real world business skills to my students extraordinarily satisfying, especially in organisations that are dedicated to their students and provide a collegiate learning environment for both staff and students.

I have found that SBC is such an institution that aspires towards excellence through continual improvement towards best practice. Leadership is a foundation to successful organisations. Being a part of an individual’s journey towards their own self-discovery (in business or otherwise) is tremendously satisfying and a great source of inspiration.

I believe SBC a good start of their vocational training and learning. I invite you to join us in making the difference in the lives of children.

Andrew

Trainer and Assessor  – Areas of specialisation: Graphic Design, Information Technologies

Andrew

As a Graphic Designer with 30 years’ experience in Advertising, Multimedia and Desktop Publishing, I have in recent years, been specialising in print media, content creation and website development.

Perth Technical College is where I completed a Dip. of Graphic Design, photography and drawing being my best subjects. As technology was becoming more prevalent in the early years of my career, I decided to complete a Dip. of Business Programming to further enhance my computer knowledge and skills. This not only gave me an advantage in the workplace, but also allowed me to pursue different career options.

I’ve trained staff onsite and in the work place, developing their knowledge of business products or to help them navigate processes and procedures required to fulfil staff work obligations.

The one thing that has always been a constant in my life is Graphic Design, and I seem to be drawn back to it time and time again. Sterling Business College has opened a door, allowing me to pass on my knowledge and skills in Graphic Design, which I fully intend to take advantage.
