“I highly enjoyed completing the Stage 2 Workplace Practices subject at Marden Senior College. The assistance I was given by my teacher through out the year was second to none. Whilst completing this subject, I gained considerable knowledge both about my sport, as well as the sporting workplace industry. The knowledge and skills I gained from the subject assisted me in my sporting career, as well as in the other subjects I completed during Year 12. Marden Senior College assisted us students by giving us flexibility, enabling us to continue with our elite training whilst completing the subject. Workplace Practices was definitely the most beneficial subject I studied during Year 12, and I couldn’t thank Marden Senior College enough. Their commitment and dedication towards each student is remarkable and I would highly recommend this subject to any further elite sportspersons.” – Alex Fry
“This external course offered by Marden was exceptionally well run by Mandy Rego. The outline of the course was clear from the start. The communication from Mandy was open and frequent. I found the flexibility of the subject fitted extremely well around my other year 12 subjects. With no strict deadlines for drafts and and final assignments this assisted my end result grade. As I had a great contact in Jack Reader, the delay in speaking to him (as he was overseas) held me up in parts but to know I had flexibility allowed me use his invaluable feedback. Mandy Rego was fantastic in her support, making trips to the school and offering a chance to attend Marden College in each school term holiday to track our progress. I guess I was slightly disappointed that it was scaled down quite a lot compared to previous years. At this point I have put tennis coaching on hold due to obtaining a traineeship with People Choice Credit Union however I’m still playing competitive tennis and hope to get back into coaching in the upcoming tennis season. I still plan to continue to obtain higher coaching certificates. The benefit of this course for me personally was that it made me take the first step in coaching and obtain a community coaching certificate. I would recommend that students stick as close to the proposed timeline issued by the instructing teacher as possible, plan your assignments and just enjoy finding out more about the sport that you love” – Nicholas Campbell
