Its surprising to hear that Excom , one of the largest IT training providers in Australia with so many branches (Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth, Auckland and Singapore .. phew thats a mouthful ) founded by Paul Koukounaras and Graeme Newe shuts its doors on 25th August 2010.
Maybe the statement by Mr Lakin might provide us some insight in to the growing issue of declining International student numbers on Australian soil.
"Across all the learning agencies, whether they be tertiary, VET or vendor, there has been a general concern that the decline of international students has had a real effect on enrollments, We’ve got this skills shortage and we still haven't got a solution to address it.” - Australian Computer Society CEO, Bruce Lakin
Hmm I wonder what this news meant to the universities across Australia.
Anyways, all students (including international students) who are effected by the closure can enroll in courses provided by Dimension Data Learning Solutions (1800 853 276) with out any extra charge as they says. Well that’s a small relief!
