Bronte Wall works with a young boy at a kids table, holding up a picture of a dinosaur for him to practice saying

“I found it really helpful in building the necessary skills to do a university degree – things like how to reference properly, which was such a big advantage going into first year. It also taught me how to build a study plan, which is about how to fit in all my priorities such as work, study, assignments, and I still use that template now.  ”
