Chanelle Smith received the inaugural Institute Medal for Highest Academic Achievement at the St Patrick’s graduation ceremony for the Class of 2014 on 6 December.
Several awards were presented on the night to a number of graduates, and the event celebrated the achievement of each and every one of our successful 37 full-time Diploma graduates – representing a 100% success rate of graduating students, and over 80% of those graduates having secured their first entry-level career positions prior to graduation starting on salaries of $40k per annum.
Since 1923, St Patrick’s has graduated over 9,000 students in a range of courses that all focus on individual support for each student with an emphasis on developing a fulfilling career, and we have a long-serving reputation for being an outstanding leader in quality vocational education.
The St Patrick’s Diploma courses in Business, Business Administration and Management focus on subjects such as events management, human resources, social media in business and marketing. Work placement is a component of the program providing internships for students across a variety of organisations and industries.
Whilst the full time Diploma program represents less than half of all training conducted by St Patrick’s, it remains our flagship and signature program.
