Claire Taylor, Studying Advanced Diploma in Business
‘Last month I started my Advanced Diploma in Business with Lexis.
Our unit for this month has been ‘Contributing to organisational development’ and covered areas such as;
- Analysing data to determine needs and objectives
- Undertaking team development and training activities
- Developing communication plans to achieve a desired work environment
" Getting ready to start my virtual class! "
Our course is currently being delivered online, with my lecturer in Perth, Western Australia and myself currently in Byron Bay, NSW.
In my virtual class there are students from a mix of nationalities who are also in different states/locations across Australia.
I have really enjoyed the flexibility of the course being online, it has meant I have been able to study from anywhere.
"Getting my assesments completed while staying at friends in Ocean Shores."
This has included visiting friends in Queensland and camping in the rainforest, by the sea and on the riverfront! I am able to hotspot from my phone’s data so even when there is no Wifi available I am still able to attend the virtual classes, and the Learner Guide and Assessment Workbook are available offline for me to complete my work if I ever don’t have signal.
Once the course returns to the classroom I will be relocating to Perth, Sunshine Coast or Sydney – three of the beautiful destinations where the course is offered, but for now I am enjoying the freedom of the course allowing me to travel’.
