Preparing for Australia Day: Courses to Celebrate Your Heritage

by Tenzing Tsewang



With Australia Day approaching on January 26th, now's the time of year that we celebrate our national heritage - which can be done in several ways. Here, we look at some of the Wandr courses that can let you do so in your own unique way.

Now that you've finished your exams and the Summer holidays are here, you've got lots of fun to look forward to, as well as Australia Day on January 26th. People celebrate Australia Day in many ways, and in this article, we look at doing so by taking Wandr courses that honour our nation's past and present.

It's important to say that celebrating the occasion is not just about looking back. Instead, it's about understanding who we are today and how we might be able to build a better future together. So, stick around as we delve into the engaging courses that give you a more rounded view of what our country means to us and how you can contribute to improving it!

So, What's So Great About Australia?

Most Ozzies are very proud to be Australian, and for good reason! For starters, the natural beauty on offer is off the charts. From the rugged Outback to the Great Barrier Reef, Oz is a real jaw-dropper, and it's why millions flock here for vacations every year - and that's before we've even started talking about the lush rainforests and amazing coastlines.

Then there's the fantastic cultural diversity we have, as Aussies come from all walks of life - something that's always worth celebrating. Bringing together a mosaic of languages, cuisines and traditions, our multicultural society makes us richer for so many reasons.

Have you ever been to a food festival offering sushi, pizza, curries, Aussie meat pies and samosas? This culinary choice is just one way in which we all benefit! We're pretty easy-going, too, and our laid-back 'no worries' attitude can be infectious. Our island continent is also home to the world's oldest culture, dating back tens of thousands of years - so there's much to celebrate.

Courses That Celebrate Australia's Awesomeness!

Here, we look at some of the Wandr courses that let you learn more about what's great about Australia. There's a lot to discover.

  • Aged Care Essentials - A central part of Australian culture is caring for and respecting elderly members of the community. Our Aged Care Essentials course gives you great insight into the hard work that professionals do in this area and the kind of career you'd have in it yourself.

Who knows? It might give you what you need to pursue a long and enjoyable career looking people in the twilight of their lives.

  • Animal Welfare Career Kickstarter - As we mentioned, our country is home to singularly unique wildlife that's not found anywhere else on the planet. Koalas, kangaroos and crocs are just three of the most famous. Our Animal Welfare Career Kickstarter course lets you see what life is like for those in the animal care field.

Other topics include how to help pets through rehabilitation and offer great insight into wildlife conservation and the important work that goes on.

  • Criminology Essentials - Australia is also known for its fair justice system - one of the cornerstones of civilised society. So, if you'd like to learn more about how things work, why not try out our Skillin' It Criminology course?

  • Travel & Tourism Essentials - The landscape in Australia is like no other on the planet, which is why our tourist industry is such a strong one. If you'd like to find out more about how this important sector works from the inside, try out our Travel & Tourism Essentials course for size.

Wandr - Helping You Make Sense of The Professional World

Giving you a clear view into a wide range of different roles in various sectors, Wandr Trial Run, Career Kickstarter, Skillin' It!, and Essentials courses give you marketable skills and the chance to try out professionals without having to commit fully.

  • Trade and construction
  • Beauty and fashion
  • Travel and Tourism
