Have you fallen in love with Byron Bay? Many of our students do and want to find a way to stay here for longer, while still progressing their careers.

Now, Lexis is delighted to offer the perfect solution. You can study the BSB30115 Certificate III In Business at Lexis English School in Ruskin Street for only $3000*.

The course is suitable for both native and non-native speakers and is CRICOS registered, which means that student visa applicants are welcomed. It is designed for trainees who are seeking to gain an understanding of business fundamentals and who may be interested in gaining employment at a mid-level administrative or customer service role. It is  taught wholly in English, thus providing the opportunity for ex-Lexis students to continue to develop their knowledge and application of the language, while also learning some highly valuable business skills and vocabulary.

The Certificate III in Business consists of face to face training and supervised consolidation of learning over a duration of 30 weeks, providing participants with the training needed to work within an office environment in a variety of roles. Experienced industry professionals will guide students learning, providing both a theoretical and practical base for their development.

Students study in class on Monday to Wednesday from 2:00pm – 7:30pm. The same hours on Thursdays are for consolidated learning – revision of material covered during the week, self-study and assignment assistance.

New students can join the course every 6th week*. Each term runs for 4 weeks during which time new material/units of competency  are covered. Then every 5th week of the course is offered as a ‘consolidation of learning’ during which time students have access to their trainer who can assist with the completion of the unit, or they can choose to study from home. The start dates for the rest of the year are as follows:

  • 15 August
  • 19 September
  • 24 October
  • 28 November

Final words from trainee teacher, Susan

 

IMG_2591Byron Bay’s first (10429NAT) Certificate IV in TESOL ends tomorrow. So, today, I took the opportunity to catch up with one of our 5, now almost qualified, trainees, Susan.

Why did you decide to do the course?

I’m already a primary school teacher but I wanted to be able to teach overseas. Then I saw the TESOL course was running in Byron Bay and I thought what a great place to study; It’s gorgeous here and I can go to the beach and go swimming when I’m not studying.

How did you feel on your first day?

I was looking forward to it but also worried about how much homework we would have as wanted to enjoy Byron Bay as well as study. Luckily I was able to do about half my work at school, half at home, and still enjoy the beautiful location and weather.

One of the first things you did was observe some Lexis English classes. What was that like?

It felt unreal.I thought it was really nice of them to have us in their classrooms.It was also interesting to see the different teaching styles. I could borrow ideas from the way they structured the lessons their board-work,  and how they interacted with the students.

And how did you feel about teaching your first lesson?

Actually, it went well. I had planned very carefully and knew exactly what I was going to say. I remember it was about sports and leisure and I had 5 or 6 students in the class, who were lovely. In a way, I probably put more pressure on myself because I was a teacher, so I had to do a good job, but luckily all my activities went to plan.

And did you feel very different when you taught your last lesson?

All of us improved so much and we understood what we were doing and why. The planning became faster and easier and I found my plans became more efficient.

What were the best things about the course?

Our tutor Anji was excellent. She had to manage five quite extreme personalities and did so with ease. She also brought the material to life and instructed well but at the same time made us work things out for ourselves.

I also enjoyed playing the part of the student when there weren’t many students from outside to participate in the classes and it was always good to observe different classes and the interactions within them.

I learned a lot about how to structure an English lesson and also gained an awareness of the grammar terminology. And one day we did a full IELTS test, which was really interesting.

So what are you going to do next?

Tomorrow, I’m going to visit my mum but then, next week, I’m leaving for Peru. Then my plans are flexible, I’m going to Bolivia, meeting a friend in Cuba and then heading to Mexico to work my way southwards. I might try and do some teaching work while I’m there or I might save that for when I go to South East Asia.

That sounds like a wonderful plan and I’m sure you’ll be able to put your training to good use. Thank you so much for talking to me today, Susan, and good luck.
