How to enrol

Shannon Whit

The theory and backing to understand how and why we perform certain tasks

My apprenticeship training has been ‘the making of me' and has opened my eyes to the success I can achieve as an employee and maybe one day as a business owner. TAFE Gold Coast gave me the theory and backing to understand how and why we perform a certain task. I found the application of theory in the workplace gave me confidence in my trainers and TAFE Queensland as a training organisation.
