Madigan - Trainer And Teacher Vocational Education - Australia


I am a retired TAFE Head Teacher of Retail/Marketing, re entering the vocational training and assessment arena. My new area of expertise is in the caring for/of the aged and frail in our communities.I have worked, experienced and studied the appropriate range and depth of skills and knowledge required of a nurse and carer for over 5.5 years, as well as caring for a member of my family prior to that, who suffered many complex chronic illnesses.
I am an empathetic, excellent communicator and enjoy the role of developing successful relationships and connecting appropriately with my colleagues, clients, students and all stakeholders involved in a common enterprise.
I am looking for a chance to start with an RTO who would find me to be most competent and personable, reliable and prepared to put in the extra work needed whenever the schedule demands it.
