All these things happened in the last two weeks. I wish to note them, because what else is a blog for? In no particular order:

- I started classes for Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. Now accompanied with brand new Three Letter Acronym "TAE" instead of the "TAA" used by the old Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. I choose Chris Morton Powerful Seminars as the RTO as I could get the class time out of the way in five days, and it was cheaper than doing one at a TAFE.
- On the same day I started the Cert IV, I discovered the administrators had been called in on one of my English teaching schools. Seems they owed the tax department a couple of years of money. So the school was declared insolvent in order to prevent the tax office closing it and taken all assets for itself. Now unpaid staff such as myself get first go of any funds remaining.
- Not much later, being advised to check out the General Employee Entitlements and Redundancy Scheme, just in case.
- Going to a wake for the school at the Story Bridge Hotel. Nice to catch up with people for the penulntimate time, but not so pleased at how yuppiefied the venue has become. But then it's been more than 10 years since I visited it. Not that I want my next workplace to go bust, but if there's a wake, it should be at the Joynt.
