As a trained and experienced social worker Russell is well placed to help students find solutions to make the most of their time at Malyon. In addition, Russell is our College Registrar so he can help students make decisions about which course is right for them and which units they need to complete. Finally, Russell also oversees the general management of the College as our College Manager.
