Aspire program supports Year 12s
It’s been a particularly challenging year for Year 12s, as shown in a recent survey from TSFX. One of the first steps we’ve taken to give Year 12s a bit more certainty has been opening our Aspire Early Admissions Program from 1 May.

Aspire gives students who have gone above and beyond through leadership and volunteering an early offer to La Trobe. They’re also rewarded with a minimum ATAR, scholarship opportunities and more.

Previous leadership or volunteering experience still counts – so even if a student has given up their volunteer work in Year 12, they’re still eligible to apply.

You can learn more at the Aspire website or the Aspire webinars

Free leadership program in lockdown
To support the community through the COVID-19 economic slowdown, the La Trobe Business School is offering a free online program in Leadership and Professional Development. Leading business academics and alumni from the University’s MBA program are generously volunteering their time to help leaders adapt to meet the new demands they are facing.

The three module, 12-hour program focuses on leadership style and strengths. As well as creative problem solving and identifying forthcoming challenges. Our MBA is designed by industry leaders and is ranked equal 1st in Victoria and 3rd in Australia (CEO Magazine, 2020). After completing the free program you’ll be awarded 15 credit points to put towards the La Trobe MBA.

The program is open to everyone, so please feel free to pass onto family and friends.
