Alyssa Dorio is certainly glad she chose Chisholm as a pathway through to University.
After not achieving her desired VCE results Alyssa was unsure of her future.
“But I knew I still wanted to study,” Alyssa said, with Chisholm’s ‘no ATAR required’ message giving her confidence that enrolling for the Dual Diploma in Sport – and completing it in just 12 months – was a step in the right direction.
“I knew I would find new opportunities via the diploma in the hopes of doing a Uni degree,” she said.
Alyssa excelled academically at Chisholm, achieving high distinctions in most of her units and was a nominee for Vocational Student of the Year at the 2020 Chisholm Education Awards.
She has gone on to follow her passion for sport and is currently studying a Bachelor of Physical Education and Sport Science at Victoria University with plans to study further.
“I plan to complete my degree and then progress to a Masters of Teaching to be a qualified Health/Physical Education teacher,” she said.
“I would love to teach in a secondary school and maybe one day become a leader or coordinator of the sporting department at a school.”
Chisholm’s Dual Diploma teacher, Donna Stevens, believes TAFE pathways offer students a unique gateway to higher education.
“The Dual Diploma qualification offers students the opportunity to follow a pathway into a university degree with guaranteed entry into Deakin University and options for credits at many other universities as well,” Stevens said.
“Our students are well placed for success in higher education owing to the combination of theory and practical experiences gained in the classroom.”
Remember – this could be the ‘not too late’ moment that could change your career opportunities right now.
