Rebecca Guligo is not afraid to admit that returning to study her Diploma of Education was hard
At 28 and a mum to three young children, Rebecca Guligo is not afraid to admit that returning to study her Diploma of Education was hard. But as a recent graduate, she is now proud to say the hard work was all worth it.
“I would encourage anybody to take up RATEP,” Rebecca said. “Teaching wasn’t really my thing but I thought I’d give it a go and now I love it.”
Rebecca said at first the study regime was difficult because English is not her first language but as her understanding and ability grew, so too did her confidence and skills.
“I love everything about RATEP. I am now more prepared in life and knowing what do,” she said. “And there are so many more opportunities. It has put a whole new perspective on my life.”
Rebecca plans to spend 2011 working as a teacher aide before undertaking her Bachelor degree from 2012.
She said it was important to her to be a good role model to her children and knows that her education will have positive impacts on their lives.
“I would definitely encourage anybody to take up RATEP,” she said. “It might be hard at first but it’s definitely worth it.”
