Students' time to step on out

CQUNIVERSITY Emerald Learning Centre celebrated the 2011 STEPS Completion Ceremony last Wednesday.

The intimate gathering of about 20 people commenced at 6pm, with a function at the centre.

During the evening students were presented with their completion certificates by director of studies Karen Seary.

The Emerald CQUniversity Australia STEPS co-ordinator, Jo Rosenblatt, said she was very pleased with the evening and very proud of the number of STEPS students articulating from STEPS into tertiary studies.

"The STEPS program is wonderful and gives you the break to make dreams come true. I quit school at the end of Year 11 and today, thanks to STEPS, I have two university degrees ensuring a secure future," operations and project manager Gai Sypher said.

STEPS is available to anyone 18 years of age and over who is an Australian or New Zealand citizen, permanent resident or a holder of a humanitarian visa.
