I would say that everything in this course is well done and put together nicely. I would highly recommend coming to a school's subject selection for the year 9/10 going into the new schooling year, I feel like this would give Redmako a great opportunity to expand and to encourage other students to learn your courses through VR. In Far North Queensland, I can see multiple schools and students who would like to do this course but don't have enough information about it so therefore they won't be interested in it.
One way to make VR more enjoyable is to maybe interact with the students a bit more... face-to-face for me is the best way to interact with other people, so personally I would use Webex more frequently with the face camera so that way you can actually see how they interact with you and other students.
Being in a rural place is quite hard to find placement without having the need to drive 1 hour to Cairns, but I would still recommend placement for this course or another other course that doesn't require placement...even work placement just so the student can get hands-on experience on what this or their chosen course is about.
The only thing I wished we did in VR is maybe some educational games, I know this might be hard in VR but it would be a great opportunity to see if the students are learning and interacting with what you are saying and teaching e.g. Kahoot
Other than that I was really pleased with this course. Our VET co-ordinator would also recommend this course to other students in our school to take the opportunity to try something new.
I’m in year 10 and I go to Northside Christian College. I love studying hospitality because I think it’s great, it’s a lot of fun and I always look forward to class. I like how the trainers help us during class and that we can always ask them for assistance if we are stuck and they are fun to be around with.
I chose to study in Diploma in Business – VR program because I wanted to continue doing some business after school. It feels more personal and a lot less distracting. You can interact with your teacher by raising your hand up or just speaking through the mic and she will go in front of where you are sitting and answer your question. It’s very interesting to learn with virtual reality. I like it as it’s different and fun and I would definitely recommend it!
I think we have about 15 students doing the Business Diploma and are so far so good. The students are really enjoying the program and enjoying the content. I believe students will have a bigger advantage by doing a diploma course. It was great to have the actual teacher come and meet with the students as well so that she’s not just an avatar I think that makes a big difference to in developing those relationships.
It’s really exciting to use the V.R. headsets and it’s obviously a new technology to the kids. They have really embraced it and found it exciting and the fact that they can sit here in the Southern Cross Catholic College Library and be in a virtual classroom to ask or type questions. It’s a phenomenal learning experience for our students and one that they have been really excited about.
I work with Redmako Learning and Northside Christian College to facilitate the VETIS program for Y10 Hospitality. I work in conjunction with hospitality teachers to deliver the course each term and throughout the year as well. Redmako Learning’s School Program has enabled the students to have a really great step up into senior years to give them practical skills that can help them gain employment in a workplace.
I would recommend Diploma in Business - VR because it’s a new exciting way to learn. There are just a lot of cool features you can do with the V.R.
Redmako is very personal and they are all very caring. The trainees and the tutors were so lovely and they really encourage me do my best in the traineeship. They talk to you like you’re an actual employee and you don’t feel like you're in school. You feel like you're actually working and you’re actually learning something not as a student but as a colleague.
The biggest benefits of doing the traineeship for me are the skills and knowledge and qualifications I will gain. The Redmako training has already given me new skills and knowledge.
Training with Redmako is fun, as well as educational. It’s not boring and I don’t dread it like normal classes at school. The training sessions are one of the best parts of my traineeship. And the website for doing my unit tests is really easy to use.
I would highly recommend training with Redmako.
Working with Redmako was a really genuine experience for me. My trainee has brought lots of benefits to my store.
Ryan Yusuf is the owner of Raka’s Royal Indian Cuisine at Strathpine. He currently has one trainee, Ben, a school-based trainee who is completing a Certificate III in Hospitality.
Through his traineeship, Ben has implemented five new initiatives into the restaurant:
- Created and advertised appropriate delivery prices for restaurant orders being delivered. He took the time to source correct information on areas where restaurant orders were delivered to, ensuring the restaurant gets the money they need to cover delivery costs. Before this, the store never had any clear delivery areas or prices.
- Customer feedback forms to help the restaurant understand their customers better.
- Social media marketing through Facebook deals, to bring in more customers.
- Minimum Eftpost payments sign, as this was causing some customer conflict.
- Workplace health and safety ideas which resulted in the restaurant purchasing a new fire extinguisher.
We asked Ryan a few questions about his experience working with Redmako and having a Redmako trainee in his restaurant. Here’s what he had to say:
“Working with Redmako was a really genuine experience for me because everything was laid out beforehand, everything was on time, I was given the plan of my trainee’s study and things like that. You guys really followed the plan and I didn’t have any hiccups at all, which is really good.
My trainee’s assignments/traineeship has benefited my store as it was helpful for me for other staff just to quickly have a look at the sign. Our service was much quicker and more accurate because the service times were already on the wall. And it helped us get some more business because people can see our fees and charges and they were happy to join in. So it benefited us both ways – time wise and also business wise.
My biggest benefit in having a trainee would be that I think I also get to learn a bit more about the industry because usually I work by myself or with only a few people, but having a trainee means the training course is more in my mind. So it has helped to increase my team.
Working with the Redmako trainer was fantastic – because Deidre is always very communicative and she always lets me know when she is coming, and if it’s inconvenient timing she always makes sure that she changes the time so it is convenient for me and for her and for Ben as well. She has been fantastic.
Depending on the business it’s really worth taking Redmako trainees on board and it kind of does boost up the business as well a little bit. I would definitely recommend yes, to take them on board.”
