Madison - Professional

Madison

Our CEO saw something sparkly in Madison and invited her to join the College Australia family. In true College Australia style, Madison was supported to progress her career by transitioning out of hospitality through a traineeship in administration.

Being a go-getter, Madison decided to grow her repertoire of skills and knowledge by completing a qualification in training, and she smashed it. Fast-forward a couple of years and she is now one of our most popular Educators, training high school students in RSA and RSG. But she isn’t stopping there—she’s now enrolled in a university degree in psychology. Madison’s passion is teaching diversity and community units to young people in an environment that not only supports students to communicate openly with her, but also guides them on how to interact with community members. She encourages them to think about who they are and what unique skills they have to offer to positively impact their communities.
