In our Sydney training centre, you’ll study a series of case studies based on real advice clients, learning everything it takes to deliver advice and engage with clients. You’ll receive regular review sessions with feedback and learning consolidation.

 
 

3. Interviews

For our top students, we’ll organise job interviews with employers within the Spark network that are the right match for your specific talents and requirements. We’ll conduct mock interviews and provide continued guidance through the process.

 
 

4. Employment
