Learning is a lifelong experience.
Despite gaining experience as a business owner in America for 17 years, I always felt regret in not having completed formal tertiary education when I had left school. Therefore, upon my return to Australia, I enrolled to study at TAFE Gold Coast where I was able to prove to myself that I didn't need to be 18 years old to make a positive change in my life, whilst securing my pathway into an engineering degree at university.
A thank you to all our amazing students. We are so glad you enjoyed your time with TAFE Queensland Gold Coast.
