A small number of staff and students braved the wild weather last Friday night to attend the MTP Alumni event at the Garden Building city campus. The wet and windy weather was no barrier to the enthusiasm of the alumni, current students and staff, who retreated from the rooftop garden to the more enclosed space of the terrace to enjoy some relaxed conversation and exchange ideas and teaching tips.
Current MTP students in attendance had the opportunity to hear stories from the frontline about agency teaching, permanent contracts, CRT work, opportunities overseas and lots of other anecdotes of beginning as a graduate in the profession.
Earnest conversations were peppered with food and drinks and lots of laughter into the night.
Special thanks to the staff who braved a very wild night and drove from near and far (even Bendigo!) to be in attendance.
A second event will be planned later in the year, with all current MTP students and Alumni invited once again. This is a great opportunity to further build our RMIT networks in the profession.
