Certificate III in Business and Certificate IV in Training and Assessment

Successful training leads to a career with Neda's host employer

As a young mother seeking an administration position, Neda Aleksic found her lack of experience and qualifications challenging.
Accepting the offer of a traineeship with BCA National allowed her to undertake a Certificate III in Business and gain a full time office administration role with her host employer.

In late 2015 Neda completed a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and thanks to both her qualifications she was promoted to the role of Training Coordinator.

“Through my previous roles and being a part of the Australian Apprenticeships NT team, I have enhanced my knowledge and have developed a strong interest in supporting training and delivery not only through my profession but also as part of the Australian VET Alumni,” Neda said.

Neda has since moved into a more advanced role with the Industry Skills Advisory Council NT (ISACNT) as part of the Training Package Development team. She consults with Industry and Registered Training Organisations to ensure the development, review and Implementation of training packages meet the current industry needs across the Northern Territory.

“I always strive for excellence and as a mother to a young boy I try my best to instill the importance of education into his everyday life,” Neda said.

“I have gone on to develop my skills further. My continuous exposure to learning through my various qualifications is a testimony to the dedication I have for our future development in education.”

Neda vows to never stop learning.
“I hope to continue my journey and be a strong advocate within the Vocational, Education and Training sector for years to come,” she said.Neda was recognised for her outstanding contribution to vocational education and training at the 2016 Australian Training Awards where she was a finalist of the Australian Apprentice (Trainee) of the Year Award after being named winner of this category in the Northern Territory.
