The Mayfield Difference


What Our Graduates Are Saying

Teachers are knowledgeable; especially Ewald who has more than 30 years’ experience in the Theatre Technician field. He brings the best out of his students. He makes his classes enjoyable with his humour whilst demanding hard work from us. He requires us to be attentive during the class to ensure our best understanding of the subjects to produce the best results possible. This ensures our every success. After a difficult start brought on by initial nervousness, I found his style helpful and easy to follow. I really enjoyed this class.

Crystal (Ping Zhang)

I have started my Cert IV operating theatre technical support course with Mayfield in July 2021. Studying at Mayfield Education has boosted my knowledge, skills and self-confidence. The support, advice and suggestions provided by Ewald assisted me in getting work ready. I am pleased to say that I have been offered a job during my work placement. Thank you to Mayfield Education.

Samjhana (Samu) Uprety

Thanks to Ewald & Jaafar for your encouragement and advice during the course that has led me to places I never thought I would go.

Thank you so much for your support and mentorship throughout my course.

I have learnt so much during Cert IV Sterilisation service & Cert IV Operating Theatre technical course.


I would like to express my appreciation for the placement provided to myself to complete the medication course in 2020.

As it was an extremely difficult year for all, I  would like to sincerely thank all of who spent the time and sourced the placement. At the completion of my placement with EPC I was offered an amazing job opportunity and commenced the following week. All the staff at EPC were both helpful and encouraging throughout my placement and continue to be so now that I am no longer there as a student but employed as EEN.

Thank you again and I hope to see you while you are visiting future Mayfield students.


My placement was very good and although the first day was daunting they made me feel at home and explained every aspect of the role. It was great and I am confident that this is what I want to do


I've just started my first week at X Private Hospital and the certification has come right on time for my pre-employment checks. I'd like to thank you for all the help and support you've given me at my time at Mayfield, and for seeing me through to the end.

I became aware of the OTT course through a colleague. I enrolled in it as it fitted well with my work schedule and I was therefore able to focus on my studies while working.I started the one-year course in 2022 and enjoyed all units, particularly those relating to the provision of operative equipment and technical support. The course is highly relevant to my job placement.The course mirrors the practical aspects of real work-life situations. It allows for a broad introduction into the field resulting in a smooth transition to technical specificities. This is reflected in the highly technical assessment on offer. Lessons and assessments require the students' utmost commitment and preparation as a prelude to the real-world working environment. Just turning up to class will not do.Teachers are knowledgeable; especially Ewald who has more than 30 years’ experience in the Theatre Technician field. He brings the best out of his students. He makes his classes enjoyable with humor while demanding hard work from us. He requires us to be attentive during the class to ensure our best understanding of the subjects to produce the best results possible. This ensures our every success. After a difficult start brought on by initial nervousness, I found his style helpful and easy to follow. I enjoyed this class.

Doing the Diabetes Education course at Mayfield was great way to upgrade my nursing skills and open up a potentially new career pathway for myself. The face-to-face sessions and the clinical placement opportunities added to the positive experience on top of getting to learn from professionals from the same field!

(From an attendee at our recent conference. Mayfield education presented).The disinfection and sterilisation lecture given by Lisa Li was very informative and gave practical instruction on best practice for sterilisation. It was great to have such a vital part of our everyday practice reinforced, and the importance of strict adherence highlighted. I learnt about gold standard sterilising operations and workplace set up, common issues and how to avert these, and the importance of adhering to manufacturer’s guidelines for all solutions and processes.

Having completed my course here in recent weeks, I could not be more pleased and grateful with the current staff involved. This year has been well structured to the best of their ability, given the climate of the pandemic. I have found the coordinator and staff to be very responsive and have very much appreciated their ongoing support.
