What our Students Employers Say
Janelle, Nominated Supervisor of Theodore Early Childhood Centre
"I have three trainees studying CHC30121 with Skills Generation and highly recommend studying with Skills Gen. They have been very engaging with myself and the trainees. Skills Gen took care of transferring the traineeships making this a very easy process. My trainees have expressed how helpful and engaging the online training has been. I have noticed the trainees are not being over assessed, they have constant contact with their online trainer, have a range of videos and online classes they can attend. The online trainer is very supportive and responds to my questions and the trainees questions quickly and is there to help whenever it is needed. This has been extremely helpful. Since the trainees have been with Skills Generation they are completing units at a much faster rate, are enjoying their study and are less overwhelmed with their study requirements. The Skills Gen CHC30121 has only five clusters, this has reduced the workload for my trainees and they are very excited by how quickly they are able to progress toward their qualification. I believe Skills Generation to be one of the best training organisations I have worked with and feel other Directors, trainees and people studying the certificate will feel the same way. Thank you."
