Keystone College doors open with education opportunities

KEYSTONE College celebrated its Open Day on Friday with guest speakers and students at the campus hub on Palmerin St.

Using technology to connect regional students to tutors, Keystone College offers diploma courses in business, community service, interactive digital media and leadership and management.

Since opening in July, manager Jo Thomas said she had been hard at work in the community.

"Since we opened I've been busy getting out in the community at NAIDOC Week and Jumpers and Jazz to get a community focus," Ms Thomas said.

"I'm the only one here so it has been a bit tricky to get out at times but we want to really be a part of Warwick.

"The students have been really good and they tell their friends about us."

Keystone College now offers micro-courses at no cost to the public and with the opening of two new micro hubs, Ms Thomas said she hoped it would spell success for regional education.

"We offer an introduction to computers course which is a very basic intro course for people getting started," Ms Thomas said.

"We also have a starting your own business course which introduces market research and other concepts which is like an introduction to our Diploma of Business.

"After every micro-course we've held so far we get one more student enrolled, and we've now opened two more hubs in regional areas so it seems to be working so far."
