Let it go

Word on the street has it that 2014 was not the greatest of years for many people. I’ve heard too many sad stories of really unpleasant things that some of our students, friends and loved ones experienced in 2014.

 

Well, thankfully (yes, thankfully), 2014 is officially over. It’s now a new year, with new opportunities.

Good things

 

It’s okay to spend some time reflecting on what went wrong in 2014. We have to learn from our mistakes, and then, use that knowledge to make sure that we are stronger, smarter and better in 2015.

 

A word of caution here – and this is the main thing that I want to chat to you about – be careful of spending too much time thinking about what went wrong last year. Do NOT dwell. Do not get trapped in a cycle of negative thinking. Reflect YES; dwell NO!

 

Once you have done your reflecting …. LET IT GO!!!

 

Of course, most people associate the phrase ‘Let it go’ with the animated movie called Frozen. And, to be honest, Frozen is what has inspired me today.

Sometimes, we truly need to LET GO of things / people / memories etc.

 

And then we have the opportunity for NEW things / people / memories and opportunities. How exciting is that?

 

At College SA, we are all about giving our students the opportunity to try again. We want you, our students to know that you don’t have to give up on your educational dreams – no matter what happened in the previous year.

 

We want you to allow yourself to have new hopes and new goals.

 

Don’t let 2014 be a prison – step away from it and Let it Go.

 

Let Go, Letting go, prosper, College SA

 

 

You can achieve your dreams. You absolutely can.

 

Now put on your best ‘Princess’ shoes and sing it with me ‘Let it go, Let it go’ ….

Get ahead with HR Management Courses

Human Resource Management is becoming an increasingly popular career choice. One of the reasons why HR Management is so appealing is that the skills that you learn can be applied across various industries. In other words, an HR Management qualification can open up many doors for you.

What does Human Resource Management involve?

Human Resource (HR) Management involves hiring and training employees, and making sure that staff is motivated at all times.

One of the main reasons that companies need an HR team is to ensure productivity in the workplace.

HR Managers are responsible for retaining the most capable and skilled employees, so that the company can function effectively and be profitable.

What are the duties of HR Managers?

HR Managers:

  • Delegate and monitor duties.
  • Regulate levels of productivity.
  • Co-ordinate different tasks to ensure that the end goal is achieved.
  • Analyse and implement strategies to increase the efficiency of a company or organisation.
  • Determine the overall success of a company by interpreting outputs at a basic level.

Why is HR Management a good career choice?

Businesses aim for maximum success. In order to achieve this, they rely on skilled, efficient, reliable and motivated employees. HR Managers ensure that such employees are retained.

Because the corporate world is growing at a phenomenal rate, increasingly more qualified Human Resource Managers are needed.

An HR Management course will equip you with the right set of skills to be able to help an organisation stay successful.

Having a Human Resource management qualification behind your name will make you a valuable asset for any company!

At College SA, we offer a selection of fantastic Human Resources Management Courses. These range from short courses and certificates, to diploma courses.

Spring has sprung!

It Must Be Spring

Hush, Can you hear it?
The rustling in the grass,
Bringing you the welcome news
Winter’s day is past.
Soft, Can you feel it?
The warm caressing breeze,
Telling you the sticky buds
Are bursting on the trees.
Look, Can you see them?
The primrose in the lane,
Now you must believe it –
Spring is here again.

By May Fenn

spring, College SA, flowers, changes, new beginnings

Can you believe it’s September already? This also means that SPRING is upon us!

Spring – probably the most beautiful and happiest season. There is a burst of colours, pretty smells, and cheerful sounds of birds chirping.

Not to mention that it is no longer a battle to get out of bed in the morning. The sun rises earlier, so we don’t have to wake up to complete darkness anymore. It is also a lot warmer in the mornings, so we can now safely remove the duvet without feeling as though we are going to freeze up at any moment!

Spring is a time for new beginnings. The bare trees from the cold winter months give way to beautiful, blooming flowers, creating a picturesque sight.

We can also “bloom” this spring. It is time to make those changes in your life, and do the things that you have always wanted to do. Don’t settle for less – you deserve better!

How about taking up a few courses that will advance and improve your life and career? It is never too late to make a change – and what better time to do it than SPRING time?

If you would like to speak to one of our friendly Student Registrars, please call

They will be more than happy to help you make a positive change in your life!

Happy Spring Day, everybody!

The Time is Now

“There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

Live big, College SA

Have you ever looked at your life and wondered why you still do not have the career you wanted, why you aren’t driving a better car or live in a house you always thought you would have by now?

There are many reasons why we “get stuck” in certain stages/phases of our lives. It can be something serious, such as dealing with emotional problems that may stem from a series of things – You might have lost somebody close to you, maybe you were bullied, or maybe you were abused.

Sometimes we are stuck in a career because we do not possess the necessary skills to be promoted, or we cannot afford to buy a new car because we might have other obligations, such as our children’s school fees. Whatever the reason may be that you feel you are not moving forward in life, I have some advice for you.

You might have heard the saying “there is no better time than the present”. I could not agree more. Every so often we tell ourselves the reason why we cannot recover from emotional pain, financial loss, or get a new job is that we feel it is going to take too much work and effort. And yes, it may take a lot of time, work, or effort, but it will be worth it!

It is never too late to become who you were supposed to be, and as the wise Karen Lamb said: “In a year from now you will wish you started today”.

No regrets, College SA

Let go of your past and have the courage to do something that will help you achieve what you were destined to accomplish. So instead of feeling unaccomplished and unhappy in your career, get up and do something about it. Study a course that will help you to get promoted or embark on a new career path. Sometimes the confidence that we receive from a life-changing career is all we need to turn our lives around.

Let go of all the negativity and emotional baggage. The time is now to take back your life! Take back what is yours, and take back what was always supposed to be yours. We all deserve to be happy and live a prosperous life. So make it happen!

That being said, if you want something to happen, you should prepare for it. You should not sit around and wait for something to happen, or wait for somebody to come along and do it for you. No! Look in the mirror and you will see that what you need to succeed is already there. It always was!

“The mental and physical space we create by letting go of things that belong in our past gives us…the option to fill the space with something new.” – Susan Fay West
