Learning is a process that never ends. It’s a part of our daily routine. All throughout our lives we are continuously learning and developing to be the best version of ourselves. We apply the knowledge and skills we acquire in different ways ultimately for the purpose of one thing - to achieve success.


The Relationship Between Learning & Employment


“The More You Know, the More You Can Grow” - Martin Hilbert


Being competent and specialising in only one skill can give you a high chance of getting employed, however, having the ability to move between various skill sets could definitely move you up the ladder. A wider range of skills definitely pays off in the long run.


The Learning Curve in a Nutshell


Learning Curve is a graphical representation of progress in learning. In the business world, one’s learning curve should be “steep”. This means challenging skills that take a while to learn should be mastered in a short period of time. Improving your Skill Sets profile can make you more likely stand out and make a positive and lasting impression to employers.


Understanding Skill Sets


Have you identified the type of training that you need in order to become more competitive? If you are after industry-specific knowledge, there are a lot of available options to explore and one of them is Skill Sets Training. It’s a simple and cost-effective way in fulfilling industry needs and considered as a stepping stone to further study and work opportunities.


Skills Sets are single or combinations of units of competency from a nationally endorsed training package and are delivered in the form of short courses. Once you finish the course, you will acquire a ‘statement of attainment’.


It’s important to understand that Skill Sets are not qualifications. They are not designed to replace qualifications but they can be considered as an alternative to qualifications in such a way that may help a worker to create a pathway to a nationally recognised qualification. In other words, you have the option to put the skill sets together to complete a full qualification later.


Take a look at the Skills Sets available on our website:

  • Accounting & Finance Faculty
    • Accounts Administration with MYOB Skill Set SOAMYOB
    • FNSSS00004 BAS Agent Registration Skill Set
  • Tourism & Travel
    • SITSS00059 Airfare Construction Skill Set
    • Use a Computerised Reservations or Operations System Skill Set SITCRS
    • Airfares & Ticketing I & II Skill Set SITFT


To get more information about Skill Sets, contact us for a complimentary consultation with our friendly advisors. You may call us on 1300 783 283 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .


Are you dynamic and driven to succeed? Nothing and no one can stop you if you are determined enough.

Sports Journalism is certainly never boring. If you start a career in the sports communications field, there is no regular 9 to 5 work structure. It’s not a routine work so no two weeks are completely the same! You can be in the office today and in the field tomorrow. Traveling is also a big part of the job and constantly working outdoors in different weather conditions.

Here are a few tips to break into sports journalism:

  • Find your niche
    Focus on one sport that you are passionate about. Finding out your niche will make a huge difference in the competitive world of sports journalism.
  • Ask the experts
    There are a lot of sports journalists out there that you can reach out to. They have various career experiences that you can learn from and they can give you advice on what route to take.
  • Practice writing
    There are many ways to strengthen your writing skills. Start blogging about sports, contribute to community papers or publications or simply write on your journal. Read articles of your favourite sports writers and observe their writing style to help you develop your own.
  • Get qualified
    A Diploma of Journalism (Sports Journalism and Match Reporting) can surely open a lot of doors of opportunity if you still don’t have one. A qualification will give a competitive edge when applying for a job.
In order for you to develop an awareness of the different forms of sports and an understanding of the current practices and procedures in sports reporting, studying a related course such as Sports Journalism and Match Reporting SPJ can definitely help you succeed as a sports journalist. This course will teach you how to write structured articles, conduct interviews, prepare features, write match reviews and submit your work to editors.

The study mode is completely online so you don’t have to worry about leaving the comfort of your own home or anywhere you choose. Enrol now and take 20% off* your Sports Journalism and Match Reporting course.

*Terms & Conditions Apply.

"I think there are more good sportswriters doing more good sportswriting than ever before. But I also believe that the one thing that's largely gone out is what made sport such fertile literary territory - the characters, the tales, the humour, the pain, what Hollywood calls the arc." -Frank Deford
