Staff at Alice Springs campus have made the most of an opportunity to showcase Charles Darwin University’s home town education and training offerings to the business community.

About 120 Alice Springs business representatives attended the “Business at Sunset” networking function in the Desert Lantern Restaurant recently.

Business Central lecturer and event organiser Nurjis Sethi said guests were given a guided tour of the campus facilities and learning spaces.

“Several of our team leaders stepped up as campus tour guides, and provided information on the courses and programs we offer,” Ms Sethi said.

“Our acting director Lyle Mellors gave a brief historic outline of adult education in Alice Springs dating back to the 1960s and including the establishment of CDU in 2003.

“He emphasised our purpose had always been to meet the adult education and training needs of the business community and general community.

“Mr Mellors expressed our interest in continuing to listen to the community about their training needs.”

Team Leader Mike Drew said that the Business Central Team had appreciated the opportunity to work with the Chamber of Commerce NT to host the event on behalf of CDU, as part of October Business Month.

He said CDU looked forward to hosting similar events in the future.
