Graduate Stories

Ayden's Story

“I learned how to take care of myself and understand my rights and responsibilities, which I never knew about before. I learned how to look after the house, how to pay my rent, how to take care of the kitchen, how to be a good neighbour and show courtesy.”

Kayla's Story

“The way I’m dealing with my current tenancy is completely different to the way I dealt with my tenancy 12 months ago. I learnt about different types of cleaning, budgeting, and how to communicate with my landlord and real estate. There is help out there for everyone.”

Rachael's Story

“When I was applying around for real estate, I could never get a place. When you give them your certificate, they look at you differently. I didn’t think it was going to help as much as what it has.”
