Initially joining us as a dedicated student, Sue’s journey at Lumify Learn evolved as she transitioned from learning to becoming a valued asset of the organisation. We talked to Sue about her motivations for joining Lumify Learn and how this choice has influenced her career trajectory.

What initially inspired you to enrol in courses with Lumify Learn, and how did this decision contribute to your career journey?

"I was in recovery from cancer treatment and looking for a way to move forward with my life. I had been in business in Digital Marketing for many years but wanted to move into a different area. The Digital Jobs program excited me. I thought that the project management course would add to my experience in a useful way and meld with my previous experience and take me into related areas in my field where I could contribute something of value."

Can you share a specific experience or skill you acquired through Lumify Learn's courses that has been instrumental in your current role with the organization?

"My experience as a student with Lumify Learn has given me the opportunity to understand the student journey and therefore support students in a meaningful and productive way. I understand the pressures, the challenges, the anxieties and worries that students go through. I am able to show them that they are not alone in these experiences and that they can move forward and succeed."

"I am a mature age student and employee. Lumify Learn has always valued me regardless of my age. I was at an age where I thought that I would never work again and Lumify Learn showed me that I had much to still contribute and I will always be grateful for that."

How would you describe the support and mentorship you received from Lumify Learn during your transition from student to employee?

"Lumify Learn is an organisation with a positive, student-focused approach. I have always felt supported as a student and an employee. It is a team atmosphere with a caring attitude to everyone."

In what ways do you believe Lumify Learn's teaching methodology or approach has helped you succeed in your current role?

"Mentoring is the lynch-pin that helped me to succeed as a student and an employee. The mentoring that I receive from my colleagues has supported me to grow professionally and personally."

Based on your experience as both a student and an employee, what would you say sets Lumify Learn apart from other educational institutions, and why would you recommend it to others seeking career advancement?

"What sets Lumify Learn apart from others is their caring attitude and genuine dedication to the success of their students. They go the extra mile. I would recommend the courses at Lumify Learn as a career advancement strategy simply because there is every opportunity to succeed with the help of the mentors."
