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.

Justine

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 varying cultures is so fulfilling and Travel to me is what life is all about.

It’s a great industry to work in and at Sterling Business College courses are industry focussed. This gives students the head start to gaining a rewarding career in this fast paced and exciting industry!!

Ric

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

Ric

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.

Andrew

Trainer and Assessor  – Areas of specialisation: Graphic Design, IT

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.

Luke

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

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.

Gary

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

Gary

I’ve practised for over 30 years as a Chartered Accountant both in my own private consultancy and in corporate businesses. This has included roles as a director/shareholder of a diverse range of companies operating in international education, technology, financial planning and “brand driven” active lifestyle businesses.

I now enjoy combining my Chartered Accounting practice with teaching financial management and business planning related subjects at SBC.

Increasingly business is conducted on a global scale. SBC provides the facilities, resources and a practical environment where the interaction between international and local students allows an exchange of ideas and experiences that enhance the learning process for both students and trainers.

I have been in the childcare and teaching industry for 20 years  and am very passionate about working with children. I look forward to assisting others working towards their goal in the childcare industry and passing my enthusiasm on to our clients.

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.

Karen

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

Karen

My love of vocational training began when I conducted some workplace learning in my previous role and I realised how rewarding it is.  Learning in a real world environment equips students with the necessary skills to be valuable members of the workforce, whatever their chosen career.

I have strong customer service skills with a background in administration, retail, merchandising and more recently in the finance industry.

Sterling Business College is a warm, caring and friendly environment for both staff and students.
