Experience education at RMIT

Learn from highly-skilled lecturers

Be inspired by passionate lecturers like Mark

Mark Mossuto coordinates RMIT’s Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and looks after the development of customised commercial training. He has extensive experience in the development and delivery of materials, activities and assessments.

“Training and assessment in any field is about making that training meaningful, purposeful, and useful to those in front of you. The contextualisation of training allows us to put meaning into what we do. Relevance is the key.”

My favourite thing about the Graduate Diploma in Education (Early Childhood) is the emphasis on practical experience through work placement. RMIT has designed a program that really does prepare you to work in an early childhood setting.
