Melbourne Polytechnic: Unleash Your Passion and Get the Job You've Always Wanted

by BecSorby (follow)
You’ve cared and nurtured for your family and you always put everyone else first. This is one of the most important roles of your life but if you’ve been considering returning to the workforce, is now the perfect time for you to pursue your next chapter?

If you can be a parent you can do just about anything – you already have organisational skills, first aid knowledge, negotiation tactics, cooking skills and you’re an expert in logistics and transportation.

You’re a teacher and a friend and a mentor to your family. So even if you might think that studying maybe be out of reach, you might be surprised that you already have some pretty strong life skills that’ll help you along the way. All you need now is guidance around the ‘nitty gritty’ of studying.



Returning to the workforce can be an anxious time but you’ll be surprised at how much you can bloom when you find your ‘something’, whether you want to go back into a career you’ve been in or you want to try something completely different.

Just stop what you’re doing for a minute and have a think about this - if you love being around people and have strong empathetic tendencies, Community Services or Education could be your next ‘something’.



If you’ve found yourself lingering a little too long over Lego or can throw together a flat pack table in record time then building and construction might be your hidden skill.

The ‘Lady Tradie’ is also on the rise; painting, carpentry, plumbing and building design are all options that offer strong career paths and there’s plentiful job opportunities in the current market.

One of the best parts about some trade careers is that work hours can be flexible around family commitments and you may be eligible for Free TAFE for some of these trade courses, In fact, there are over thirty courses available, not just trades, that fit under this initiative.



If you’re looking for a career change, would love to work towards a promotion or thinking about returning to the workforce after taking a break, Melbourne Polytechnic has courses for everyone wanting to refresh their skills or go into a new career entirely.

Melbourne Polytechnic has over 100 years of experience in the education sector, helping you pursue a wide range of courses across multiple industries. Most importantly you’ll be welcomed and supported along your study and career journey.

If you are curious about your options or know exactly what you want to do, there’s no harm in talking to someone about it, right? Who knows, maybe this is the sign you need to make the next step. Check out the Melbourne Polytechnic website today to get started.
