Hi Mark, It was really great to catch up with you and the team at AITC again. Even though I didn't pursue the trade career, my time at AITC will always have played a major part in my life. Without the inspiration and guidance from the team, students and especially Richard P I have no idea how my life would be now. Thankfully I got the kick into gear and motivation I needed to get fit, continue my education and strive for bigger and better things from my experience at AITC. It almost seemed like fate how at a time when I was bullied at traditional school and wanted to quit, that AITC opened its doors and gave me the platform to continue my education. Since leaving AITC I have obtained a Bachelor Psychological Science, Masters Counselling and 2 years Experience as a Social Worker/Mental Health Worker at FSG Australia and I am currently running my own Counselling business. Thanks again for taking the time to chat with me on Friday and I hope that we come in contact again soon.

I love the atmosphere of the Redlands campus! The staff and students here are very friendly and the vibe is wonderful. So much so, that although we live in Redcliffe, I want my son to come here for the IQ program

I witnessed a wonderful grace filled moment on the train from Varsity Lakes this afternoon. Four very polite students from your Training College were in the same compartment as me. A Downs Syndrome young men entered the train and sat across the isle from me and not far from your students. Two of your students obviously know this young man as they addressed him by name and asked how his day was. The interaction between them was such a delight to encounter on a train. Your students are to be commended! I felt tears well up in my eyes as I witnessed this tolerance of difference. Such graciousness is to be valued. My husband suggested that I share my beautiful experience with you.

Firstly thank you so much for the update on the young people’s successes in the first weeks at AITC!! I can personally say that Jared came home each day last week with a positive disposition and attitude to his new learning pathway at AITC.  He is finding new found confidence and maturity in himself which astounded me and made me feel very proud!  He would have NEVER have learned to believe in himself and have such a positive attitude at his previous school!!  You have all created a learning atmosphere which inspires our young men and women to believe in themselves and strive to be the best they can be – values, which, unfortunately are no longer embraced in mainstream schools. I am very thankful for taking note of a radio advertisement late last year about AITC and taking the first step to creating a better future for our son. Jared was hesitant at first to leave his familiar “school” and “friends” last year but he has now come to realise that AITC was the best choice for his future.  He is excited to learn and he is taking control of his own destiny and becoming a very confident young man.  This would not have been possible in his previous learning environment.  He has spoken of the positive attitude and how he feels that he can achieve so much more surrounded by like-minded colleagues who are focused on their careers. He is very fortunate to have such a great learning environment at AITC and is embracing the values which will set him up for life.  My husband and I thank you for providing such a nurturing learning environment and for helping us shape Jared into a confident and skilled young man.

A HUGE thankyou to you and your team for a wonderful evening last night.I can't begin to tell you how impressed with both the set-up and the staff Deborah and I both were. However, as I stated when we spoke, Deborah and I being impressed isn't enough, our son needs to like it and commit to it if we are to get a result. Our son doesn't talk about school much, it simply isn't a lot of fun for him as sadly is the case with a lot of students today. He simply didn't shut up about the place on the way home and was back up and into my head at 6.15am this morning about it so I think it's safe to say we have his motor running. I hope that you understand what I say here, in as much as your facility and your staff were amazing the two stars of the show for all three of us were Connor and Brittany, and the conversation and time that they afforded our son at the end was what I believed sealed the deal for him. These were just kids like him who were a little different, didn't fit in or particular like school but wanted to move on and grow as young adults. They let him know that it was OK to not fit into a box and that if you REALLY want to do something then this is the school for you - I really can't thank them enough.
