An incredible journey

At different stages throughout her life, Eve has completed Learn Local courses in many different areas including training and assessment, small business administration, web design, Photoshop, bookkeeping and financial planning. However, she had no idea the skills she acquired would help her run an international business with her husband from her south east suburban Melbourne home.

After Eve’s husband Alex invented the world’s first flexible, extendable and reusable silicone nozzle, they launched a business together – which Eve now runs from their home. Today this business distributes the product internationally and has received various innovation awards.

Eve believes her family would not be on this incredible journey without the skills she acquired at Learn Local organisations. The courses have helped her develop and design marketing and promotional material for the business, even a new interactive website.

The teaching at Learn Local centres was top calibre compared to other mainstream learning environments. I had access to resources, such as computer programs or extra help from trainers as they were only a short drive away,’ says Eve.

Eve’s Learn Local journey hasn’t finished. She will keep on acquiring new skills to help her manage and innovate their ever-expanding business.
