Coaching: The Complexities Coaches Encounter
What are the keys or tools needed to unlock someone’s true potential? It depends on the person! It also depends on the skills of a professional, such as a qualified coach. Every human is unique, so naturally every coaching journey is unique.
Join Dr Be Pannell in this session to explore what constitutes an effective coach, what tools and research can be utilised to address complex coaching scenarios, plus much more.
This mini class session will be held on Tuesday 17 January at 6:30pm.
Counselling: The Scope of a Counsellor and the Complimentary Role of Coaching
Do you know what a counsellor does and the tools they utilise to help people? In this session you will learn what the profession of counselling encompasses, how counsellors help a broad variety of people in the community and how a counselling degree can include both a counselling and coaching focus.
This mini class session will be held on Wednesday 18 January at 7:30pm.
Criminology: The Real Relationship Between Crime and the Media
Not all crimes are equal in the eyes of society. Why is that? Find out by delving into real-life cases that received world-wide coverage, and learn what effect the media can have on the justice system.

This mini class session will be held on Tuesday 17 January at 7:30pm.
Law (PLT): Open Doors to The Skills and Connections Legal Employers Really Want
The legal profession is evolving – and fast. The skills you have learned during your academic studies are vital. But to stand out as a new lawyer, you need to demonstrate that you’re tech-savvy, self-aware, a strong communicator and have a great EQ. The ACAP PLT provides you with the extended business, technology and personal skills you need. In this session you will find out what studying an ACAP PLT is like, with a glimpse into the skills we know employers are looking for. We’ll draw on the Law Institute of Victoria’s (LIV) insights into the profession and ACAP’s experience in offering real-world, practical learning. Hear from the LIV about the current skills employers expect and why, and join an interactive classroom-style discussion with our PLT educators to help you understand what those skills mean for you. Join us for this information session so that you can make the most of your PLT and step into the legal workplace with ultimate confidence.
This mini class session will be held on Thursday 19 January at 6pm.
MBA: How to Develop as a Leader in Unprecedented Times
This decade has seen unprecedented global events. The world, and the way the business world operates, has changed. With radical change comes a need for leaders who have adapted and acquired the skills needed to navigate people, organisations and complex environments.
Join Dr Be Pannell in this session to explore the skills and attributes of the world’s top leaders.
This session will be held on Wednesday 18 January at 6:30pm.
Psychology: Obedience to Authority – A Historical Analysis From a Psychological Perspective
Authority figures telling people what to do is part of modern life. In most case, what people are instructed to do by authority figures has legal and ethical reasoning, but not always. History has many examples of authority figures demanding behaviour in a way that we would consider immoral and unethical. Some people are almost 100% consistent in following the directions given to them by authority figures, others seem to completely ignore advice or enjoy breaking the rules.
Join Professor John Reece in this session to reflect on one of the most famous (some would say infamous) series of studies in the history of psychology: Stanley Milgram’s experiments on obedience to authority.
This mini class session will be held online on Wednesday 18 January at 5:30pm.
Social Work: Values and Ethics: The Heart of Social Work
If you are interested in studying social work but feel unsure about what a social worker does, then this session is the one for you! This session explores the important role that social workers play in our communities, and highlights the values that underpin the profession. Professor Annie Venville can answer all your questions.
This mini class session will be held on Tuesday 17 January, 5:30pm.
