                                   recommenced her education by enrolling into VCAL (Victorian Certificate of
                                   Applied Learning). Dianna’s return to education was assisted by the financial

                                   Dianna not only completed her VCAL but went on to successfully complete a

                                   Certificate IV in Business Administration with asistance from the CCEF.
                                   From those early years of uncertainty, Dianna developed in to a confident
                                   student. As the mother of a young daughter, working fulltime in administration
                                   including reception, sales, and purchasing, Dianna’s future is filled with
