Certificate III and IV in Educational Support

Employer: Woodend Primary School 

After months of assisting her son’s class with morning reading activities, Ebony Springall realised the ritual had become her favourite part of the day, and her future career path was set.

After reading with a few children who struggled with learning difficulties, Ebony wanted to do something to help. She wanted to encourage them to succeed and fill them with much needed confidence.

Encouraged by friends and family, Ebony enrolled with Fast Track Training Australia and studied a combined Certificate III and IV in Education Support.

After completing her course Ebony applied to schools in her area and received multiple job offers. She accepted a role as a teacher’s aide at Woodend Primary School, and within weeks was offered a full-time contract.

Ebony is proud to be the first member of her family to achieve a nationally recognised qualification. She takes every opportunity to encourage others to take their futures into their own hands, find their passion and make it happen.
