Anderson

Anderson

Anderson, one of our students who completed our Certificate I in Transition Education, achieved a big personal goal during the course.

Once a much quieter man who was afraid of dogs, Anderson has dramatically improved his confidence and practical skills during the course.

He can now demonstrate excellent road safety skills, has the tools to deal with his fears and is able to handle changes to his plans.

However, his biggest achievement is that he now happily travels independently between NSS and his home each week using public transport.

Anderson’s achievements are a huge credit to our trainers and assessors who work with our students to make sure they receive practical outcomes from our accredited courses.
