Stephen Dawson credits the VET department at Sacred Heart College with enabling him to follow his passion and confirm his choice to pursue a career in the sport/fitness industry. The school gave him the opportunity to undertake a Certificate III in Fitness, which qualified him to work in a gym and was a great stepping stone towards his long-term goal to establish his own personal training business.
From his training, Stephen has learnt the value of having a positive attitude towards study and work and the opportunities they offer. He believes that integrating theory and practice is crucial to being a successful student and putting his knowledge into practice.
Stephen is now studying an online Bachelor of Business Sport Management through Deakin University in Melbourne. As well as eventually owning his own business, Stephen aspires to enter the high end of sport management in a Tier 1 sporting organisation.
