The Sejumi Jumpstart Program

JumpstartEvery school holidays students join us at Sejumi Institute of Further Education to gain new skills, knowledge and 4 QCE points. The program is split into two week-long blocks, with some online activities to complete during school term.

During the two blocks students participate in a variety of activities. These are designed to develop teamwork, communication and time management skills. During the January/April 2018 holiday program students gain valuable computer skills, to help them to present their written assessments and verbal assessments during senior high school.

Students do not sit quietly in the classroom; they solve puzzles, play games, make board games and produce posters, both on the computers and by hand.

The Sejumi team, due to the fantastic tropical city in which we are based, has embedded a Certificate II in Tourism (SIT20116) into the program. This means that in addition to all the new skills and knowledge the students gain, they receive four QCE points. At the end of 2018, all students are invited to the end of year Sejumi Graduation, where they will graduate in front of family and friends, dressed in an academic gown and wearing an academic mortar board. A great way to end the year.

Graduate Programs commencing May 2017

Many of us start the year with big plans of starting a course. Sometimes we do this to help gain a promotion or new job and other times we take a course to give confidence or to formalise our experience. If you started a course and dropped out, or didn't actually get around to starting, then now is the time to continue.

Three programs to choose from

At the end of May Sejumi is commencing the next unit of three graduate programs:

  • BSB80215 Graduate Diploma of Strategic Leadership
  • BSB80615 Graduate Diploma of Management (Learning) 
  • BSB80515 Graduate Certificate of Management (Learning)

These programs are offered via our online learning platform, with workshops held in Cairns and Darwin. Our teaching team have a wealth of experience in the fields of management and learning and hold relevant Masters level qualifications. We will also deliver workshops in many locations for groups of seven or more students. Sejumi Education uses Moodle as its online learning platform, a preferred platform for many universities within Australia and internationally. This enables students to access materials at any time of the day. This flexibility is particularly useful for people who work unusual hours or in remote locations.

Study Skills Workshops at commencement of course

Before commencing the program we invite all of our students to join us for a one day preparation workshop. During this workshop we will show students how to use their computer effectively; particularly "Word". We will show you how to insert an auto table of contents; footers and headers; auto lists of figures; use 'smart art' and other useful features. We will also show students how to find articles in an e-library; insert citations and use referencing software.

Time for a change? Then be prepared.

January is a time for change

January is a time for change – a time of making new year resolutions.

Did you know that by mid January most of us have already broken our new year resolutions?

Have you ever decided to gain a qualification, so that you can apply for a new job or gain a promotion, but made so many excuses such as “I’m no good at studying”; “I can’t find the time”; “I probably will fail”? Well, in 2017, change the way you view studying – gain skills to enable you to successfully complete a course and gain a qualification.

Many people start a course that requires the ability to write effectively, research and reference and even to give presentations. What is the problem with this? Well, if you don’t have those skills then you could find yourself struggling to keep up with the study load, because not only are you learning the content of the subjects, or units, that you are taking, you are also trying to learn how to source information; embed your research into an essay or report; produce a PowerPoint or Word document, and the pressure mounts. Unfortunately, this pressure build-up often results in people dropping out of a program.

Before embarking on a program of study, think about it for a moment. You didn’t buy a bicycle and head off on a 50km bike ride; you probably didn’t cook a six course meal the first time you cooked. In some instances you might have, but how much easier would it be if you took the time to plan and prepare first? It’s the same with studying – take the time to gain skills and knowledge and surprisingly the experience will be so much better, even might I say enjoyable.

Our first tip for 2017 is when making this change, or any change, remember to plan and prepare and take some of the stress out of your life and you’ll be one step closer to achieving your dreams.



Graduation Cairns 2016

Sejumi Graduation 2016 Cairns
Graduation Cairns2016

Graduation Cairns 2016. November saw the first of our graduations for 2016. It was fabulous to see our Certificate II and Certificate III students graduate at Rydges Esplanade Cairns. The ballroom was a mass of purple and silver sashes with black gowns and mortar boards. Purple sashes represented Certificate II graduates and silver sashes represented our Certificate III graduates.

Family, friends and school teachers attended the graduation to celebrate, and of course to take photos. Some students are now heading off to further study, or for employment opportunities, in other parts of Australia; and others are heading overseas. We are looking forward to welcoming many of this year’s graduates back to Sejumi in 2017 to complete a gap year with us and moving forward to the 2017 Double Diploma program.

We’ve watched many students graduate over the years. It’s always interesting to hear how they’re going since leaving us. Did they follow their dreams? Was there a new path to discover? What unexpected opportunities arose?

For us, it’s a time of reflection, as we watch these young people heading off into the unknown. Some of them are nervous and others more confident. We also recall the frustrations; the highlights; the laughter and the tears – and that’s only ours! Never work with children and animals they say. However, I think we can all truly say that when we see the students graduating with their huge smiles and with that sense of accomplishment, it makes it all worth while – every step of the way.

Once again, from all of us at Sejumi, we wish all our graduates the best for their future and we hope to see them all again, and hear all about the next part of their journey.
