A Sucess Story - Loumoro Lavai
Loumoro Lavai hails from Elava in Gul f Province, graduated with Advance Diploma last year 2013.
This is her story ….. I completed Grade Ten (10) at Malalaua High School & did not make it to Grade twelve (12), and I thought that this was the end of my education.
I, enrolled at SCSD Centre and did basic typing. While at the Centre, my trainer noticed I was a fast learner and he recruited me to assist the Students. Fortnightly, I was paid K100 which I asked that K30 be paid to me for my bus fare and K70 be paid towards my school fee for spread sheet Lotus 123 version course. After completing Lotus 123 Version for one month, my Principal send me to do my work experience with Ideal Autoparts Ltd. With my high achievement job performance I was recruited as a permanent employee for the next six (6) years.
In 2013, I enrolled at IEA College of TAFE and took up studies in Accounting and eventually graduated with the qualification of Advance Diploma in Accounting . The Department of Treasury advertised positions which I applied for and secured the position Assistant Senior Budget Officer.
Its a pleasure for me to thank the Manager, Trainers and the Administration Team of IEA College of TAFE for their time and effort and for offering real training for real jobs. Before the training, I was not in a position to work in the Budget and Finance Industry. However, the Professional and Qualified Trainers of IEA of TAFE has trained me with the necessary skills and knowledge enabling me secure employment with the Department of Treasury . Therefore I would highly recommend IEA College of TAFE to anyone intending to further their education and career.
A word of encouragement to students ….. Always dream of big things to be happen in your life. For me, in previous years, I saw positions in newspapers having requirements of a Diploma, Degree, Master, or PhD and I have asked myself, how will I get them? I tried hard and got Advance Diploma, now I’m heading for the next step till I get PhD. Always have a Plan, Vision and a Goal to Succeed in your life.
Be like a spider, never give up, always try until you reach the other side. I, once dream of big things to be happen in my life and I have become Successful in my dream and happy where I am now.
I am looking forward to continue to succeed in my career and where one fine day I will be the Secretary for Treasury Department???
That’ all have and best wishes in your Studies
