Those who don’t want to commit to four years of study at University as they are not sure that University is for them. They can do 12 months with us then decide – Approximately 40% to 45% of students go on to University. Those who are clear they do not want to go to University but do not have the business or administration skills they need to get a great job. In 12 months – they will have the skills they need and employment rates for students are exceptional. Those who aspire to be in leadership roles – but would live a great job in a prestigious law firm earning excellent money. Legal Secretarial graduates are sought after by 4 of the top law firms in Sydney. They compete for the students applications to join their graduate programs and complete their training. 100% of graduates were employed last year and the top students had 3 offers before they left.
