Janelle Dawson


As a professional educator of many years in both the public and private sectors of the training and education industry, with a passion for vocational training, I am so proud to be the Principal of Sterling Business College. Sterling has an excellent reputation as a leading training organisation and a provider of first-class quality training and assessment.


Student Services and Administration Manager

I have worked in the Administration field with RTOs for a number of years and am glad to have found my place with Sterling Business College.

Perth is a great city (I have lived here my whole life!) and there are so many opportunities for people to grow and develop their skills and knowledge here – all while having some fun!

I enjoy the large mix of cultures and nationalities of both the students and staff at SBC. There is always something new for us to learn and Sterling ensures that our students are well prepared for the workplace.


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.


Senior Trainer and Assessor  – Areas of specialisation: Visual Arts, Graphic Design, Workplace Health and Safety


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.


Trainer and Assessor – Area of specialisation: Early Childhood Education and Care

As an early childhood educator, I have over 20 years experience working in both private and community Childcare centres.

My fulfilment comes from seeing children grow and flourish as life long learners. During my career, I have worked, played, and developed the little minds of  children from birth to 8 years.  In addition to my experience as an educator in Childcare centres, I am also a trained early childhood teacher and have worked in K-3 classrooms across schools in Perth.

I was inspired to join SBC, to share my knowledge and experience with all the wonderful students.


Trainer and Assessor – Areas of specialisation: Business, Leadership and Management, Marketing and Communication, Workplace Health and Safety


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.


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

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.


Trainer and Assessor – Areas of specialisation: Travel, Business and Customer Service


I am a bubbly and ambitious trainer with a love of people and how we learn. My career expands over travel, retail, corporate, government and small business industries. I love working with people to help them grow and learn a plethora of skills. At Sterling Business College, you will find me training in travel and business units in all areas of customer service up to leadership skills.


Trainer and Assessor – Area of specialisation: Early Childhood Education and Care

I have an Early Childhood Educator background and have worked in a variety of roles in services across WA and the NT. I have coordinated a Child and Parent Centre in remote WA and managed Educational Leadership and large teams of Educators. I have a passion for nature based pedagogy and keeping up to date with best practice research in the Early Childhood Sector.

I am very excited to be on the team at SBC and look forward to supporting our upcoming Educators as they enter the Sector.
