Student testimonials

"My week is perfect because I have three days at TAFE, two days working, and then my other two days I can practice my hobby, photography. My favourite thing is that we have one hour maximum of theory. After that we jump into practical. That is the best part. I love being here at TAFE because of the practical. The facilities and resources are excellent at TAFE. It is very career focused, and very relevant because every time we are in a practical session, I feel like I am on the job site. The teachers are very friendly, professional and specialised. I get inspired by the teachers because whenever I'm stuck or I want something they're ready to help. After I finish TAFE and get my Diploma, eventually I'll join the Police Forensic. It's my future, and I want to build it right."
