Joanne’s story

A future Master Practitioner of Coaching!


We sat down with Joanne Hewlett and a had a brief chat about her studies with The Career Academy


How did you hear about The Career Academy?

I was living in a very small town and could only study online so I googled the kind of study I wanted to do and The Career Academy popped up.


Why did you choose your The Career Academy course?

I chose the course, Diploma of Psychology and Counselling at The Career Academy as it was exactly what I was looking for and wanted to do.


How did you find the tutor and student services support throughout your time with us?

The tutors gave me nothing but encouragement and praise and constructive criticism where it was needed which helped me learn and grow as the course went on. I also knew that if needed I could reach out to other students doing the same course for tips or advice as the support was there.


Have you been able to make use of the information studied and learnt in your course? If so, how?

On finishing my course I have now started another course with The Career Academy studying Child and Adolescent Psychological Development to further my education, knowledge and ability to start implementing why I wanted to study these courses in the first place.


What’s your next step now you’ve graduated? What are you up to now?

My next step and what I am doing now is also training to become a Credentialed Master Practitioner of Coaching.

All this has come from an idea I had to open up, which plans are in process, a community based bicycle workshop and give kids and adolescents a safe place to come to and learn a skill as well as develop their creativity, give them guidance and direction and help them on their journey in life.

The Career Academy has kick started this journey for me and I will be forever grateful for their encouragement and belief in me.
