VET experience to Paramedicine – part 2
Last February we introduced you to one of our year 12 students, Nicholas Obstoj. Nicholas had been combining VET study, practical experience and volunteering, to build his pathway for beyond school in Paramedicine. Nicholas has now completed his Certificate IV in Health Care (Specialising in Paramedics) through the Australian Paramedical College. Nicholas studied this course externally to school, while also volunteering as a First Aid Officer and working part time at Kmart. Nicholas volunteers in first aid at racetracks throughout Darling Downs and Brisbane. He has gained skills and knowledge that will no doubt give him a great start to his tertiary studies at ACU
We are proud to share that Nicholas received acceptance into the Australian Catholic University, Community Achievers Program, and has been offered a place automatically into Paramedics for next year with ACU. Nicholas plans to continue working at Kmart while he applies for casual positions in patient transport, while studying at ACU. Congratulations Nicholas! You are a shining example of success in using VET Pathways to lead to an Academic Pathway.
