She believes in the power of higher education and the doors that professional development can open for our learners. Each year we have hundreds of graduates completing our nationally recognised programs. Here's what Catherine has to say about the benefits of higher education:
"Education not only equips a person with the skills for work but also for life. You will learn to use logic when making decisions and interacting with others. In addition to critical thinking and emotional intelligence, you will learn 'how to learn' to meet unforeseen challenges in the fast-changing world. I believe education transforms lives and helps you become valuable members of society."
- Catherine Ng, General Manager, CIT Solutions
This month, Catherine will be representing CIT Solutions at the Singapore International Technical & Professional Education & Training Conference 2022. She is looking forward to discussing her insights on challenges and growth opportunities in the Australian Technical and Further Education (TAFE) sector at the event during in her presentation on "Transforming the Australian Vocational Education and Training Sector for the 21st Century: What Now and What Next".
