The course was informative and the teachers provided an insightful view both from an acedemic perspective and lived experiences. I was surprised at the services within my community . It motivated me to become more involved in my local community and I am happy to say I have been successfully employed within the Community services sector since the completion of my studies.

Too simple and generic. It gives a bit of introduction to the community service industry but not enough to enter the workforce.
