Student Story – Jennifer Pletzer

"Last year my partner and I were traveling around Australia, when he decided to study Permaculture and found the best suited course at the Byron Community College.
I chose to have a browse through the College’s Brochure to see which course might appeal to me and found the Certificate III for Early Childhood Education and Care.
It made me get excited about our move to Mullumbimby. I have always worked with children but never actually thought about getting a degree or similar.

I have now just finished my Certificate III, the first Certificate I have ever finished since Highschool 10 years ago, and I am so excited about all the opportunities this has opened up to me and I have already started working as a full time nanny.

Thank you Jud and thanks Byron Community College.

I highly recommend this course to anyone working with children or even just planning to have children as it helps understand these little beings on a new level and gets you excited about the smallest milestones reached. Good times."
